There are two and a half stories in Moriarty the Patriot Vol 2. They are set in Sherlock Holmes’ London but there is where the similarities end.
Albert, Louis and William are sick of the elitist society of Victorian London. Despite being of noble birth, Albert wants to right society’s wrongs using his inheritance from their father, Count Moriarty. The brothers vow to play Robin Hood to allow the poor to get their just revenge for the wrongs afflicted on them by their masters.
Moriarty the Patriot Vol 2 is perfect for Sherlock Holmes fans and mystery manga readers. However, note these are not mysteries to solve like the Holmes canon. Instead, it is a look into the heart of the Moriarty family and what motivates them to be Holmes’ nemesis. It’s a fun perspective. 4 stars!
