Comic Book Review: Sherlock: A Study in Pink #1

This comic book is an adaptation of the Sherlock television series.  The script is actually from the show and the book is in the manga style so you do need to read it backwards, well to me it's backwards.

This was a well done adaptation.  For those that want any type of remake to mimic the source, this is just like the television show.  I guess it's kind of funny that I prefaced that sentence the way I did as this is a character created over 100 years ago.  Either way, it was a fun read and made me think of the television episode and made me want to read more and/or watch the show again.

The art in this book is excellent and the artist captures the facial expressions in a very manga sort of way but not going over the top with it.  The faces are extremely well done and the poses are great.  The word and thought balloons were kind of hard to follow as they were in weird spots and you just needed to know whose turn it was to speak in many of the panels.

If you're a fan of Sherlock, I'd recommend checking this out.  I received mine in the Geek Fuel Subscription Box.  You can read my Geek Fuel reviews on
