3 reasons to pick up Sherlock Holmes #1 from Dynamite by Vince
1. It's Sherlock Holmes minus all the Hollywood cliches, but with what feels like a great mystery at it's pounding heart.
2. This engaging mystery forces you to quickly turn page after page as you 'race the clock' along with Sherlock Holmes.
3. It's the return of hardcore mystery to comics. As Holmes would say, 'The Plot Thickens' and we all get to go along for the ride.

I'm a huge Sherlock Holmes fan and a fan of both Leah and John. This can sit proudly beside Peter Ackroyd and Billy Wilder as one of the best reinterpretations of the character. Great stuff.

As a Doyle fan and an avid Holmes follower, I was skeptical about any new edition of these classic characters. I'm delighted to say that the book exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. The story and dialogue are crisp and clever without seeming out of time. The artwork by newcomer Aaron Campbell and storytelling by Leah Moore and John Reppion scripting, are first rate. Great faces and delicious angles. This book is in the hands of smart creators who have clearly done their homework and given Sherlock Holmes a bold and fresh voice. Add to that a fantastic Cassaday cover and what are you waiting for?
