My favourite of an incredible series,
This review is from: The Hound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes Graphic Novel (Eye Classics) (Paperback)
This is a wonderfully faithful but, crucially, thoughtfully adapted comic book. There's nothing slavish or lazy about it, nor anything sacrilegious -- both of which are piftalls one would assume this kind of thing would fall readily into it.
The authors clearly love Holmes. And they have done him proud.
The adaptation is stylish and cinematic, but also full of dialogue and descriptions incorporated inventively from the original. The whole thing is full of atmosphere and very well paced.
A masterpiece of writing and illustration. I really, really enjoyed it and all the other books in this series.
