The first thing that strikes you is that the artwork is stunning. The characters are portrayed just as I imagine them and the drawings of dimly lit drawing rooms and misty moors are highly evocative. Inevitably some of the plot and dialogue is lost due to the sparseness of the text but with a story such as this, it doesn't matter too much.
Very enjoyable. I can't wait for `A Study in Scarlet' and am a bit miffed that they didn't do the novels in order because that means I'll have to wait to read my favourite!
However I feel that the comic format causes the story to lose some of its suspence and impact. I do not believe this to be a serious flaw but it is certainly enough to keep it from five stars.
This would be a very good way to introduce a younger reader to the Holmes adventures and as such I applaud 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.
