Adequate But Not Overwhelming Jan. 29 2012
By Drstatz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the latest of a number of Sherlock Holmes stores in cartoon form and I have been underwhelmed at best prior to now and this particular offering does not break the mold. One reason is the cartoon format cannot hope to compete with print no more than, say, an Alexander Dumas unabridged novel should expect any competition from a movie version. Possibly part of the problem is my elderly eyes have difficulties following the dialogue interspersed with the graphics. Younger eyes may have easier times.

When the book arrived, it was somewhat surprising to see one of the stories titled "Dr Jekyll And Mr Holmes" being I already had a book (Estleman, Loren D. "Dr Jekyll And Mr Holmes")with the same title. It turned out not only not to be the same story but also had some nice tie ins to an original story by Doyle. I do wonder what copyright issues are involved here but no matter. Comparing the two would be unfair considering the advantages print has over cartoons--especially a book of 208 pages to those provided here.

For the most part the plots were not bad although several I considered to be, in a word, weak. Still, the book made for a good read on a Saturday afternoon and, although most of my collection is considered superior, it's still worth the price or, better yet, if you can get it used you'll enjoy the best of all worlds.
