The world’s most famous detective has found a new home at Dynamite Entertainment.Â The company plans to release Sherlock Holmes #1 in May 2009.
Written by Leah Moore and John Reppion, Sherlock Holmes #1 begins the “Trial of Sherlock Holmes”, a NEW story which presents the great detective with an all-too personal quandary and explores the nature of the man and his world with a mix of refined ambiance, carefully crafted mystery and chilling suspense! From gaslight to deerstalker cap, the Victorian mood of the series is designed with reverence and a modern edge and presented flawlessly by the artistic talents of Aaron Campbell — and it all happens under striking and iconic covers by Eisner Award Winning artist, John Cassaday, with colors by Eisner Award Winning colorist, Laura Martin.
In a prepared statement, Dynamite President and Publisher Nick Barrucci said, “That’s right, folks, the comic racks are going to have to make room for another great detective! The original detective! Already John [Reppion] and Leah [Moore] proved their ability to bring literary icons into comics, especially in and around the Victorian Age. So fans can rest assured that Holmesâ€¦ and Watsonâ€¦ are in capable hands. What’s more, fans are going to love Aaron Campbell’s interior art, as he visually re-creates the world of Sherlock Holmes and the Victorian Age. And with John Cassaday providing coversâ€¦ well, it’s as our detective says, â€˜Elementary, my dear Watson,’!”
