The Hound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes Graphic Novel (Illustrated Classics Series) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Graphic novels and Sherlock Holmes stories are perfect for each other. Of course, that doesn't mean that I thought that when I first saw this. The first thing that went through my mind was "Sherlock Holmes in a comic book, that is just wrong!!!" and then I flipped through it and realized that this is so cool! The art in this book does great justice to the original story and the beauty found in the panels can't be overrated. While there is no true substitute to the original work by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this adaptation is simply amazing. I can't wait for the next story adapted by this team.
This graphic novel didn't quite capture the same sense of loneliness and fear that John Watson encountered whiles staying with the Baskervilles. But the artwork and similarities to the original are A+.
