A new edition, "Graphic Classics: Arthur Conan Doyle" is updated and revised, with five new stories adapted in the Graphic Classics style. As with the previous release, several different illustrators adapt and interpret some of Doyle's most famous stories and creations, as well as a few lesser known gems.
This second edition is less Sherlock Holmes heavy, containing only two adaptations of the Great Detective. Also removed is the lengthy "The Lost World," which allows for room for more short stories. Still missing is an adaptation of Doyle's mummy tale "Lot 249," but overall, I prefer this version to the previous release.
A Parable - A clever little allegory about cheese mites debating where cheese comes from.
The Adventure of the Copper Beeches - Returning from the first edition, a fascinating Sherlock Holmes adventure well-adapted by Rick Geary.
Captain Sharkey - A brutal Pirate adventure, with an illustration style that fully plays to the strengths of the story.
The Los Amigos Fiasco - Possibly the best tale from the first edition, an amusing tale of an Electric Chair gone wrong, with a complimenting visual style. Very funny!
Master - A touching, short poem.
The Great Brown-Pericord Motor - Milton Knight adapts this amusing tale of greed and invention in his usual comic style.
How the Brigadier Came to the Castle of Gloom - Introduced in "Graphic Classics: Adventure Classics," one of Doyle's comedic characters, Brigadier Gerard, returns in a tall tale of romance and daring do.
The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb - A new Holmes adaptation, brilliantly illustrated by Simon Gane. More please.
The Ghosts of Goresthorpe Grange - An unusual ghost story of a man who buys an ancestral mansion and is disappointed to find that it is not haunted. What is the use of an ancient castle with no ghost?
