The “Trials of Sherlock Holmes” collects the 5 part story arc about a case that leaves Holmes in jail fighting to prove his innocence.
This book reads exactly like watching a classic b/w Sherlock Holmes TV show (that is a good thing). Moore and Reppion have captured the essence of Sherlock Holmes really well and the story is intelligently crafted to keep the reader constantly trying to figure out how Holmes will solve the case. The artwork suits the story well but I didn’t like the thick inking on peoples faces. It does do a great job of capturing the look and feel of period London. The book also features some great cover art by John Cassaday.
This TPB is a great addition to the Sherlock library and a very enjoyable read. If you like the classic incarnations of Sherlock Holmes (i.e. Ron Howard) you should like this book also. I cant wait for the next volume. [ISBN-13: 978-1606900598]. 8/10
