Leah Moore and John Reppion are back with a new Sherlock Holmes series at Dynamite Entertainment, which introduces the curious case of The Vanishing Man.
“Sherlock Holmes is just such a great character and the world he inhabits is such a rich one. Even in the original stories, Arthur Conan Doyle was always hinting at all these other, as-yet-unrecorded adventures which he and Dr. Watson had already had. To be able to fill in some of those gaps with our own stories is a huge privilege, but also loads of fun,” said Moore and Reppion in a joint statement.
Sherlock Holmes: The Vanishing Man #1 introduces the curious case of Michael Williams, a reliable man at both work and home, who disappears without a trace from foggy old London Town. The famous consulting detective and his faithful companion Dr. Watson investigate, only to discover new dangers lurking around every corner!
“The Vanishing Man is a mystery a bit more in line with the Strand Magazine short stories which were collected in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes,” said Moore and Reppion in a press release from Dynamite Entertainment. “As ever, part of the fun is tying the whole thing into the existing Holmes chronology; working out which of the original stories comes before and after, and exactly what’s going in Holmes’ life and world at that time. We’ve always tried to stick to Arthur Conan Doyle’s version of Holmes as closely as possible.”
The husband and wife team will be joined by artist Julius Ohta. Sherlock Holmes; The Vanishing Man #1 is scheduled to arrive in May.
