"It's a puzzle within a puzzle and lots of fun. This could be (Moore and Reppion's) best work yet." - Newsarama
"Leah Moore and John Reppion did a bang up job in kicking off a new era of Sherlock Holmes in comic book form. A brand new mystery, utilizing the tropes that made the detective famous." - Major Spoilers
"The book exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. The story and dialogue are crisp and clever without seeming out of time. It's a Batman story with a brand new wrapper!" - Jeph Loeb, writer/producer of "Heroes," "Lost," and "Smallville"
"Moore and Reppion bring new life to the iconic Holmes and Watson, with a tantalizing tale and their hallmark attention to period detail. Whether you're a dedicated Sherlockian or a Holmesian newbie, grab this one!" - Leslie S. Klinger, author of the "New Annotated Sherlock Holmes" series
"The dialogue feels right. There are times when the cadence of the speech draws me in and makes me feel like I'm reading Doyle's classic works." - Comic Book Resources

Format: Paperback
This is an original Sherlock Holmes story that tries to stay faithful to the source material - i.e. doesn't shoehorn zombies in. In an innovative twist Holmes is accused of murder and put on trial leaving Watson and Lestrade in a race against time to solve the case.

This does feel authentic to the characters, the period and the location. There are meticulous details in architecture, geography, language, and forensics that really anchor this story to the past. Whilst you can't be sure every little detail is perfect the creators put such a firm air of authority on the page it feels accurate. This can work to its detriment however as there are so many historical facts crammed in it can read like a textbook sometimes and not the flowing, easy to read prose of Dr. Watson.

The art is good overall with most panels getting a lot of love and attention. The colouring looks digital but is done with skill. Whilst there are some plain backgrounds there are also some incredibly detailed ones such as the Natural History Museum and Kew Gardens. These are probably posterised photographs but they really add to the production value of the piece.

It is a good story packed with Holmsian references and quirks. The ending is a little too clever and can make you feel unsatisfied. It might even be too subtle for the casual reader leaving them mystified.

The extras are bountiful indeed, running for more than fifty pages. They include a history of Sherlock Holmes in comics from a noted expert; a complete short story, the Adventure of the Devils Foot by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; the entire script of issue one; character design sketches; and two pages from one of the authors on their creative process.

Thumbs Up and I can't wait for the next one!

While this colelction started off most excellently, I felt it was let down by the ending which made it feel like the most promising tale was somewhat contrived. A shame, but still most of the tale is great fun.
