Wanted to adore this book The Holmes Watson continues to be spot on, and sassy Mrs Hudson is a great addition But in the end there were too many tired tropes damsels in distress, attempted rape, a conniving femme fatale , and an exotic transwoman who seems to exist solely to fulfill a straight couple s sexual fantasies for even the strong main characters to overcome Let s talk a minute about Irene Adlero, shall we Holmes tells Watson he doesn t like the client but that he dislikes blackmail So [...]
This is the second in a graphic novel series that place Watson and Holmes as African Americans in contemporary Harlem As an Afghanistan war vet, Watson works in an inner city clinic Holmes with dreadlocks is a Private Eye and meets Watson when one of Holmes clients ends up in Watson s clinic Watson is separated with a son who lives with the boy s mother The story is written by a variety of authors and drawn by different artists One of the writers in this volume is Lyndsay Faye Perlow is among th [...]
The artwork in Volume 2 is inconsistent, which I guess is to be expected with different artists Some of it I liked, some not so much As with the artwork, I found the stories inconsistent I liked the Irene Aldero story quite a bit and a few others A couple of the stories were really hard to follow I may have liked them , had I been able to figure out what was going on.
Holmes and Watson are back This grouping of stories remains true to the source material while adding the fillip of a contemporary setting, changing the characters to African American and transferring the action to Harlem and Rockford IL I will definitely continue to read this series and I recommend them to those who like graphic novels.
This is not a graphic novel for kids It s tie in to Sherlock Holmes and John Watson is slim There are so many incredible books out there The authors decided this was not going to be one of them.
One of the freshest takes on Holmes and Watson I ve come across Love this line of tales.
Love this take on Sherlock Holmes Trigger warnings for rape and LGBT representation but otherwise it s an all round good mix of stories
I really enjoyed Watson Holmes Vol I A Study in Black, and have been looking forward to seeing where Karl Bollers and Rick Leonardi took these characters next Sadly, I found Vol II to be a decided step backward I think that the decision to compile a series of one shots by a variety of writers artists was a misstep, as these relatively new characters should have been given the time to develop fully before being handed off to others for their interpretation Compounding the problem is that the sto [...]
A series of one offs centered around Watson and Holmes This is a fun, gritty, and urban reimagining of the observant Sherlock Holmes we all know He s in Harlem, and his partner Watson, is a war vet with a complicated family history The dialogue is excellent and reminds me of Netflix s Luke Cage, sans superpowers.
Solid second volume to the series This volume consists of various short stories by various creators The highlight of this for me was the introduction of Irene Adler
I particularly enjoyed the last two chapters of this volume Lyndsay Faye did an amazing job adapting the Solitary Cyclist and Scandal in Bohemia
