I am thrilled to bring you the cover art for the upcoming Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia issue #2. (And how happy am I that Mycroft gets a cover!) The second issue of the four-issue miniseries from Titan Comics will go on sale September 14 at 48 pages for $4.99. Based on the script by Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss, the comic is illustrated by Jay, and the plot features Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman) working […]
It’s a week away, which isn’t much time, but we’re all having to be more flexible these days. The Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) is taking place June 17-19 this year at the Toronto Reference Library on Yonge St. It’s a blend of virtual and in-person events. The well-respected Libraries & Education Day, held Friday, June 17, is taking place online, for example, while the new Academic Symposium on “Histories & Futures of Comics Communities” takes place the same day […]
Titan Comics is continuing to translate and publish the manga adaptations of the BBC’s Sherlock TV show episodes. The first half of “A Scandal in Belgravia”, the first episode of the second season, was serialized from 2019-2020 and collected in Oct 2020. (If you missed getting it, it is currently listed for reorder at your local comic shop this month under Diamond code MAY22 1791.) Part two begins serialization in August. (Part one ran five issues, so I assume this […]
We live in an era where nothing is dead forever. Brand awareness is so difficult to develop, with so many things demanding our attention, that anything that was somewhat successful has a chance to come back. Which means I shouldn’t be surprised that Watson and Holmes, the urban comic version of the classic characters, has a new story coming out! But I am very pleased. This is one of my favorite takes on the character in comics. We last saw […]
This is a bit devious. Last year, ComicMix ended up settling a lawsuit brought by the Dr. Seuess estate. That decision prohibited them from publishing Oh, The Places You’ll Boldly Go!, a Kickstarted Seuss/Star Trek mashup. A judge had previously ruled that such combinations are not parodic or transformative. Apparently, as part of that lawsuit, research was done on the Seuss copyrights. Now ComicMix is crowdfunding The Zaks and Other Lost Stories, a collection of six stories now in the […]
As pointed out by Craig Shutt, the upcoming Enola Holmes: The Graphic Novels, graphic novel versions of the Nancy Springer books adapted by Serena Blasco, has a sequel available at Amazon. That means three more comic book versions of the girl detective!

Interestingly, those titles match volumes 4-6 of the […]

Out in May is an intriguing graphic novel from Avery Hill Publishing. 2120 by George Wylesol is a choose-your-own-path … well, adventure doesn’t seem the right word, as you’re a computer repairman trapped in a generic office building. You follow choices through the pages, although many of them, at least at the beginning, are very similar looking rooms and hallways. (I had a review PDF, but that is my least favorite format for these kinds of books that require jumping […]
