Sherlock Should Be Better About Detail
I was happy to get a copy of Sherlock: The Complete Season One Manga box set for a project I’m working on.
It has the three volumes corresponding to the three episodes of the first season of the Sherlock TV show in a slipcase box along with “three exclusive art cards”. Those turned out to be copies of the book covers.
Except… they got the credits wrong. All three of the cards have the credits
“Writer/Co-Creator: Mark Gatiss
Co-Creator: Steven Moffat
Those credits are only true of the final book, The Great Game. You can see what I mean by comparing the cards to their covers. They’re the same except for the credit blocks. A Study in Pink was written by Steven Moffat.
The Blind Banker was written by Steve Thompson.
While The Great Game matches.
This is similar to when a syndicated TV show uses the same credits for all its episodes. It’s common, but it’s sloppy. In the case of print, I’m not sure how something like this happens, as it seems it would be easier to use the original files instead of redoing them, but I don’t know what the process really is. Sometimes I think I’d be happier if I didn’t notice these things, but then again, Sherlock might be proud of me.
