    It’s nice to see adaptations of Holmes, but they needn’t have bothered with “The Valley of Fear” It’s a terrible book that reads like a cross between furniture-gnawing paranoia and a sheaf of advertising copy for the brutal Pinkerton agency.

    I think that it’s really cool that they are making the Sherlock Holmes into graphic novels. This way, the people who don’t like to read will be able to enjoy the Holmes stories.

    I think it’s great that they have made the Holmes stories so accessable, and I can see how they would lend themselve to the graphic novel format. Hopefully they will turn people onto the stories themselves but it doesn’t matter. Remember, Conan Doyle, like Dickens and many other “classic” authors was orignally published in weekly instalments in magazinse – Holmes appeared in the strand magazine – and so the books we know today are in themselves an adaptation. If you don’t know how Holmes met his appearent end at the hands of arch enemy Moriaty, read The Final Problem, suspense from start to finish!

    Probably one of the Hapsburgs.

    I’m pretty sure this was posted on Boing-Boing before, but for those interested in the original Strand stories Stanford has them in PDF form at this link.

    Make sure you check out Culbard’s adaptation of H P Lovecraft’s At The Mountains of Madness.

    Superb.

    According to his web site Culbard is teaming up with Edginton on Princess of Mars and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward

    Here is the link to his site http://www.strangeplanetstories.blogspot.com/

    Does the name Basil Rathbone mean anything to you?

    That’s certainly not Jeremy Brett’s chin.
