SHERLOCKIAN CORNER: THE YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES ADVENTURES!

SHERLOCKIAN CORNER: THE YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES ADVENTURES!

PER COMICS FORGE . . .

Sherlock Holmes is one of my all time favorite literary characters. The stories are just a perfect blend of mystery, crime, mythos, and everything else all wrapped up into one convenient package. So I’m always interested to see a different take on the character and this one really caught my eye by the fact that it has a steampunk element to it and that it’s Sherlock Holmes not quite grown up. So I was intrigued and interested to see what direction they would take the character.

Our story begins in old London, but a different London that you or I know. Here it’s age an of technology and iron and steel. And Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock chases a mysterious man through the slums and onto the wharf…before the villain, Cowl, blows Holmes and the wharf up. Holmes is rescued by his friend James and they head back to their school, Longhall Academy where they prepare for their classes the next day. And then…James dad, Professor Moriarty, shows up with some bad news. His mother has been killed. Holmes, in his typical fashion, attempts to solve the crime while being somewhat haphazard with his friends feelings. Can Holmes solve the mystery and help his friend? Only time will tell.
