In which Holmes defends himself
For months weâ€™ve been following the adventures of Sherlock Holmes.Â A locked room mystery, with Holmes as the primary suspect, brought readers into the series, but it is the answer that caused us all to stick around.Â The final issue arrives this week, and itâ€™s wrapped up in a neat package as only Sherlock Holmes could deliver.
Just in time for the new blockbuster movie, catch up with Sir Arthur Conan Doyleâ€™s famous detective Sherlock Holmes with IDW Publishingâ€™s new hardcover collection. The Sherlock Holmes collection will present every classic short story and novel in the order Holmes lived it, beautifully accented with all-new, full-color illustrations by celebrated artist Kelley Jones.
The Hollywood Reporter has Warner Bros. so excited about the upcoming Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes movie that has already green lit a sequel.Â And while that news is an indicator the celebrated sleuth flick might do super good at the box office, the news that Brad Pitt is interested in playing the villain in the follow up movie should have everyone scrambling to lock schedules to get this film made.
Kieran and Michele Mulroney, the writers behind the now shelved “Justice League: Mortal”Â project, have been brought on board to penÂ the new movie.
Arriving in stores this week (August 26, 2009) is Project Superpowers: Chapter Two #2, Buck Rogers #3, The Boys: Herogasm #4, Sherlock Holmes #4, Red Sonja #47, and Borderline Volume 3.Â Dynamite Entertainment sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issues, that you can read after the jump.
Wildstorm has announced the latest in the zombie genre – Victorian Undead.Â And before you ask, yes, Sherlock Holmes is involved.
The setting? London, the year 1854. Gas lamps throw long shadows across closed storefronts; a horse-drawn carriage prattles down the cobblestone street, paying no mind to the feral children sleeping in the alley. The only sounds audible at this late-night hour are a bit of music rising from the pub on the corner and the low moan of a zombie shuffling over the sidewalk.
The six-issue mini-series will be written by Ian Edginton with art by Davide Fabbri.
Take the jump for a peak at the full cover and gruesome variant.
The problem with many comic book story arcs is once you hit issues three and four in a six issue arc, the story starts to stall as the writer attempts to fill the time before the turn and final denouement that wraps everything up. Fortunately, this is not the case with Leah Moore and John Reppion as the title character remains on the run.
Arriving in stores this week are Buck Rogers #2, Sherlock Holmes #3, and the Dan Dare Omnibus Trade Paperback, all from Dynamite Entertainment.Â The company sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek, that you can read after the jump!
The mystery of the locked room mystery
Leah Moore and John Reppion did a bang up job in kicking off a new era of Sherlock Holmes in comic book form.Â A brand new mystery, utilizing the tropes that made the detective famous.Â Issue #2 finds Holmes in jail for a murder he may have committed, so howâ€™s he going to get out of this one.
I think Sherlock Holmes has alwasy been in the back of my mind as a favored hero, and this latest trailer for the Robert Downey Jr. movie has sparked further interest in the sleuth.
