FOG! Chats With Cynthia von Buhler, Creator of ‘Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini’ at FORCES OF GEEK!


The rabbit-obsessed Minky Woodcock is a detective in the tradition of Holmes and Watson but whom is lavished in the trappings of stage-light burlesque. The multi-talented writer, artist and performer Cynthia von Buhler took some time to discuss about the newly released collected edition of Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini from Titan Comics. The children’s book author takes a look backstage in Houdini’s time with the more adult spiritual crime drama with Minky Woodcock.

FOG!: Thanks for joining us, Cynthia! We’re really excited about Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini. Who is Minky? Is the comic persona based on a real person?

Cynthia von Buhler: Most writers channel themselves into their characters. Minky Woodcock has always been one of my alter egos. I wrote her with myself in mind.

However, my model was the beautiful and talented burlesque star, Pearls Daily. Her mannerisms, style and spunk are all Pearls.
