We’ve seen crossovers, and some of them are really great and some of them tend to miss the mark. Moonstone Books comes to the table today with a crossover that not only has me scratching my head, but has me ready to plunk down my money to pick it up and read it. Are you ready for the Sherlock Holmes and Kolchak team-up?

The long awaited MUCH EXPANDED (over TWICE the story!) novelization of the
critically acclaimed crossover graphic novel!
Two of the most unique investigators of all time attempt to untangle the same
mystery…100 years apart from each other! The lawless wild west- the hidden
world of Victorian London- the present day hell of Hollywood…there…and back
again.…one of the strangest stories never told…
“Gentile’s characterization was top-notch. Holmes is brilliant, sharp-
tongued, crafty, manipulative, physical and surprisingly compassionate in his
pursuit of justice in the name of an unjustly imprisoned immigrant…Gentile’s
narrative voice for Kolchak perfectly captures Darren McGavin’s noirish
voiceovers and downtrodden schmuck-who-won’t-give-up personality.”- BookGuide
The book arrives in January 2015, and the $6.99 price tag makes it easily accessible.
