Titan Comics has released the first lettered pages from Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s Mycroft Holmes and the Apocalypse Handbook #1 that arrives in stores in August.

MYCROFT HOLMES: THE APOCALYPSE HANDBOOK #1
(W) Kareem Abdul, Raymond Obstfeld (A) Joshua Cassara

Basketball legend, novelist, and superstar polymath Kareem Abdul-Jabbar brings his take on Sherlock Holmes’ older brother to comics at last! An all-new adventure set in the world of the bestselling Mycroft Holmes novel, The Apocalypse Handbook, sees the diffident, brilliant Mycroft pulled into a globe-spanning adventure at the behest of Queen Victoria and a secret organization at the heart of the British government. A madman is on the loose with civilization-destroying weapons, each two hundred years in advance of the status quo. Can the smartest man in England set aside his idle, womanizing ways for long enough to track down the foe that may be his match?

The first issue goes on sale on August 3rd. Knowing more about Jabbar’s previous novels, I think this book will be than more simply relying on name recognition to sell issue, I think it will sell on the story alone.
