Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson return in manga form in Moriarty the Patriot Vol 3.
Holmes is arrested for murder! Sir Baskerville is playing the Most Dangerous Game! Moriarty is exposing the dark underside of the British nobility!
The two stories here are based loosely, very loosely, on the A Study in Scarlet and The Hound of the Baskervilles. These new versions of those classic mysteries cannot be solved by the reader. The clues are only described during Sherlock’s reveal at the end of the stories. The real mystery is whether this Robin Hood version of Moriarty is a hero or a villain? To be honest, I’m still not sure after reading three volumes of this series.
If you are a fan of Holmes but not obsessed by him, Moriarty the Patriot Vol 3 offers up a completely new look at the characters. 4 stars!
Thanks to VIZ Media and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
