^^ No, that will be set in contemporary New Orleans, although they do seem to be going for a retro atmosphere.


But he uses different characters in different eras.
Some of the characters are immortal or long lived, so they show up in many eras. Mina, Alan and Orlando have been in almost every volume.
True, and that would be fine. I just wouldn't want to see a Sherlock-like update.
That would kind of defeat the purpose, as the concept is literary characters teaming up. That can be used in different eras, as Moore has done. I can see them doing a Once Upon A Time and having parallel plotlines set in different eras, with the "immortals" appearing in both.
