late 19th and early 20th centuries who first appeared in publication in 1887, in the periodical, The Strand magazine. Holmes was the creation of Scottish author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

A brilliant London-based “consulting detective”, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess; and renowned for his enormous scope of observation, astute logical reasoning, and skills in forensic science to solve difficult cases.

Many writers have tried their hands at creating their own Holmes tales; and, in 2009, Leah Moore & John Reppion joined the likes of Nicholas Meyer, Loren D. Estleman, Stephen Fry, Neil Gaiman, and Stephen King with the release of their acclaimed original mystery comic book “The Trial of Sherlock Holmes.”

I am so happy to have come across these beautiful stories. The print artwork (below) is stunning! And I am pleased to see Holmes in this graphic venue.

The individual comic books, and grouped editions containing more than one book (e.g., 1 of 5 through 5 of 5), are available online at Amazon.com and Amazon.uk.

The Game is eternally afoot!
