art style is amazing, I would never have imagined Benadryl Cabbagepatch
fitting in so well with manga. I would highly recommend this to any fan
of Sherlock wanting their fix, if not just for the artwork alone. "- Jay
was sublime! I absolutely love the BBC series because Holmes has always
been one of my favorites and Moffat has done a beautiful job of
bringing him and Watson into today's day and age. He uses the classic
cases as the bare bones to a plot that he then cleverly modernizes.
This is the graphic novel version of the modern BBC version of A Study in Scarlet.
I read Scarlet many times and until Moffat's first episode aired, I
would never have even known where to begin modernizing it in a way that
doesn't water down Doyle's perfect character, setting and mood. That
Elementary show? Trash! compared to this.
The illustrations were
spot on. I love graphic novels, but generally when they are adapted from
television or films the characters end being either way too perfectly
beautiful, or the exact opposite. Not so here. The characters look like
the characters. Cumberbatch looks almost like a caricature of a person
in real life, so to pull off that level of animation is a feat.- Kandice
genuinely made me laugh some of Sherlock's faces that were pulled and I
love it when a book/manga can do that. Overall a brilliant story with
awesome characters displayed in a form of art I love"- Charlie
