Book Description

Dec 6 2011
Sherlock Holmes, the great detective stars in four some of his strangest cases in this graphic novel. In "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Holmes," Sherlock must help a friend immersed in a split personality spinning towards madness. In "The Adventure of the Opera Ghost," Holmes travels to France to uncover the murderous "Phantom," terrorizing the Opera House. In "Murder at Moulin Rouge," Holmes and Watson return to France to unravel death at the famed club and gain assistance from notables such as Oscar Wilde and Toulouse Lautrec. In the fourth full length mystery, a budding reporter attempts to uncover the disappearance of Holmes in his retirement years, only to find that Holmes has a new passion and it deals with corpses. As a bonus, "The Amazing Holmes" short tale is included as Holmes is put to the test to see if he can solve a challenging maze.

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate But Not Overwhelming Jan. 29 2012
By Drstatz - Published on Amazon.com
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.
