    1. Chris says:

      I enjoyed this better than the BBC Sherlock in terms of it being a contempory Sherlock It equals Elementary in terms of dealing with modern problems in a real world as opposed to the Whoish feel of the BBC series Also Bollers is better with the women charactes Lestrade s counterpoint is Stroud, a woman for instance.

    2. Valerie says:

      Beautiful graphic novel Would recommend to anyone who enjoys retellings of Sherlock Holmes The action isn t particularly compelling, don t read it expecting major twists intrigue, but there s a lot of heart that keeps things alive I rather enjoyed the art style, the dialogue, the appearance of Mike There were typos that made me cringe, sometimes the words that are bolded really don t seem to make any sense as deserving of import a personal pet peeve those factors were distracting But all in all, [...]

    3. Terence says:

      I wanted to like this The idea of an African American with Sherlock Holmes character and intellect raised in Harlem sounds great but Bollers doesn t think it through It felt too much like an episode from the Cumberbatch Freeman Sherlock with the ethnicity tacked on.I do want to continue with the series, however, and see if Bollers can t make this iteration of Sherlock truly unique.

    4. Elisabeth says:

      Probably the most interesting re imagining of the famous duo I like the story, the setting, and the characters, and I m very glad Vol II has now been funded The only problem I had was that I kept hearing Holmes voice with an English accent, which I doubt this character has But Watson is note perfect and Mycroft is wonderful too Very enjoyableA 9 4 The problem with Holmes voice was bugging me, so I re read it with Elementary s Detective Bell another intelligent, well educated, black New Yorker in [...]

    5. Elizabeth A says:

      In this retelling Holmes is a P.I Watson is an Afghanistan war vet, now medical intern, and 221B Baker Street is located in Harlem, New York I enjoyed the updated version of this duo, and the gritty, urban setting Holmes sometimes talks in old timey speak which does not make sense, and is no where as quirky as the original Watson, though is great I didn t love the art in this graphic novel, but do plan on reading the next installment to see how the story unfolds.

    6. Nicole says:

      Another surprise library find The art was often a little rough and literally sketchy for my taste, but the writing was a good attempt to reimagine the characters and concepts in contemporary Harlem.

    7. Garrett Seney says:

      A very interesting and different take on Sherlock Holmes The writing and story are good The editor leaves a little note when Holmes is explaining his deductions to tell you where to look back and see it for yourself Overall, a great Sherlock Holmes story

    8. Lena says:

      Anyone who knows me remotely knows I adore Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s famous Sherlock Holmes I grew up seeing two thick volumes of The Complete Sherlock Holmes on the bookshelf and always knew he was a brilliant detective It wasn t until a few years ago, when I endeavored to read Doyle s works, that I understood the hype Sherlock Holmes is my spirit animal, if spirit animals could be literary characters from the 19th century When I discovered New Paradigm Studios had jumped into the arena with a m [...]

    9. Hannah Givens says:

      The buzz was right this is a really good book The first ingredient in a good Holmes story is a mesmerizing Holmes, and we ve got it He s a good detective, almost otherworldly but then when he explains his reasoning, it s obvious His reveal scenes are much better than most of the TV and cinematic versions I ve seen recently His Watson is a big guy, a modern medical intern and war veteran, and as the title indicates he s just as important as Holmes As usual, much of the character development surro [...]

    10. Hollowspine says:

      Watson and Holmes are turning up everywhere these days This interpretation takes Sherlock and John to Harlem, where Holmes is a P.I and Watson a Afghanistan vet and medical intern I initially enjoyed these new portrayals of the famous duo, they worked well together and John seemed very well adapted to this new modern world I was a bit put off by Sherlock s inexplicable diction, use of the Game is afoot and other Olde English type vocab, which is even dropped in the British modern take on Doyle s [...]

    11. Alan says:

      Sherlock Holmes appears to be a character everyone wants to update lately The BBC has Sherlock quite enjoyable as an aside , CBS has Elementary which I ve been told is good , and Karl Bollers takes Sherlock, places him in New York s Harlem, and tosses in a little bit of the George C Scott movie They Might be Giants.Oh yeah, this Sherlock is African American.Watson is an intern at a clinic where a baby is found in a dumpster Combined with the gangs and drugs in the area Watson, a Desert Storm War [...]

    12. Skye Kilaen says:

      Eisner nominated Glyph award winner And yet almost no one has read this It s such a shame All the familiar Sherlock Holmes elements are here, but remixed and made fresh Holmes operates out of Harlem, New York City He s an eccentric private investigator who shows up an an inner city emergency clinic asking questions about a kid brought in unconscious Watson is an ex military medical intern at that clinic When the kid s toxicology screen shows exactly what Holmes told him it would, Watson wants to [...]

    13. Robert Hudder says:

      So the modern world has an extreme fascination with Holmes House MD, Elementary and the new British Sherlock all reimagine the classic detective The three that I mention in particular have Holmes be flawed like the books Drug addict, social pariah with mommy issues Watson and Holmes does something braver It brings back Watson as a prime character Watson is than a scribbler along for the ride but has his own life and own issues This take is refreshing It is set in Harlem and using black charact [...]

    14. Ken Moten says:

      I have tried on many occasions to expose myself to and get into detective fictions Some attempts are very successful, some are not This is one of those good attempts It takes the modern Sherlock Holmes story to Harlem and Watson is not simply a man way over his, head but a man who can handle himself just fine story is told from his point of view I really recommend this book and supporting this series overall.

    15. Arlene says:

      New indeed4.25 stars This was a very good take on the classic Sherlock Holmes and Watson But there were moment when the scene changes kinda through me off And sometimes the dialogue seemed to drag on a bit too long in some scenes where it seemed like he was trying to make sure that Holmes said those classic Sherlock quotes And Watson was just the muscle The art was greatI think how it was drawn really help with the type of story he was trying to convey, them being in New York and all Can t wait [...]

    16. Shelley says:

      4.5 An updated Sherlock Holmes, set in Harlem with Jon Watson medical intern post Afghanistan , Holmes PI and Lesley Stroud female LT on police force This was such a pitch perfect update and adaptation I honestly enjoyed it than I do Sherlock The art is a little too scratchy for my taste, but the coloring was gorgeous The story was smooth and there were clues in the art all along, which I appreciated I cannot wait for volume 2 to come in

    17. Lee says:

      I love a good reimagining of classic works And this is one of the best and most original Sherlock Holmes reimaginings I ve seen.This time, Holmes and Watson are both African Americans and 221b Baker Street is located in Harlem I really really really liked this one I hope that there will soon be a volume two.

    18. Betty says:

      Book 8 for my 50 book PoC Challenge.I liked this and thought it was interesting It was fun but not especially profound, and the ending felt a bit abrupt weneeddiversebooks 50bookPoCchallenge

    19. Salamah says:

      I was really excited to read this but I am sorry to say that the story fell short I felt the story became a little confusing to me and I eventually became bored The story begins with babies being found thrown in the garbage Watson a doctor in the ER tries to save the baby but the poor baby dies Then another man with severe wounds comes into the ER and we meet private detectives Holmes Then the story changes in a weird way The two come together to look for the man s sister and then they find her [...]

    20. Jeffy Joseph says:

      A wonderful retelling of the classic duo which rectifies the shortcomings of the original While Doyle s stories presented unusual problems and their solutions, they never used the medium for social critique To me, the extent by which crime fiction can be used to expose the social ills is what makes it different from other genres This retelling triumphs over the original for its focus on the contemporary issues When most of the retelling of Holmes Watson pair ends up being or less faithful to th [...]

    21. Viccy says:

      I do not read a lot of graphic novels Often, my mind creates the best illustration of the action That being said, this graphic novel is quite good Holmes and Watson, set in Harlem Watson a medical intern, back from tours in Afghanistan and Holmes, a private detective, working with the police A shooting victim shows up in Watson s ER, saying his sister has been kidnapped Holmes appears and whisks Watson off to search for the missing sister Along the way, mayhem and gang violence.

    22. Fraser Sherman says:

      So Jon Watson, Afghan vet and now NYC medical intern, is curious about a dead baby that turned up in a dumpster and that brings him into contact with Holmes, an enigmatic, brilliant PI Oh, and they re both black I m surprised nobody, as far as I know, has tried that before A solid job of storytelling, though Holmes so far doesn t seem anywhere near as eccentric as his prototype just the fact that he does what he does is apparently eccentricity enough here I look forward to Vol 2

    23. Daniel Cornwall says:

      Great re imagining of the Sherlock Holmes legend, moved to the gritty streets of Harlem Sharp visual style, believable and positive characters working out their issues As far as I can tell, they have a decent grasp of computer technology.

    24. Danika says:

      This comic book collection graphic novel was a far interesting and dynamic interpretation of the canon of ACD that the latest season with Bamblesnatch Cooperpot which was bonkers, what did I even watch I m definitely going to have to track down book 2 sometime soon.

    25. Anna says:

      A slick adaptation with a snazzy converse wearing Sherlock.

    26. Sonya says:

      Nice artwork Interesting take on Sherlock Holmes set in Harlem A few typos , but otherwise reads well.

    27. Carrie says:

      Racebent Sherlock Holmes and John Watson in Harlem.

    28. Tom says:

      I didn t actually finish it just felt like the writer was trying too hard.

    29. Clarence says:

      I originally reviewed it at redheadedmule comics watso Full text I ll admit that I m not a Sherlockian or a crime mystery enthusiast However, I wanted to check out works by Black creators Watson Holmes Volume One makes for a decent afternoon read The famous characters and situations are done from a Black American point of view This collection of five issues is set in Harlem, New York The main characters are distinctly urban, with the inquisitive S Holmes sporting dreads and being the go to consu [...]

    30. Kate says:

      Sherlock Holmes and John Watson have gone through many re imaginings over the years and this is one that certainly has not been seen before The time The present The location Harlem S.Holmes is a private investigator as always and Jon Watson is a divorced medical intern fresh back from military service in Afghanistan This time around both Holmes and Watson, as well as most of the cast, are not white and it is fantastic From when I first heard about it on tumblr I was excited and I m overjoyed tha [...]
