To celebrate today, 2/21 in US dating, I am announcing the debut of SherlockComics.com, a site cataloging appearances of Sherlock Holmes and related characters in comics, graphic novels, and manga. Books are described in five categories:
- Classic Stories — comic adaptations of Sherlock Holmes stories written by the original author, Arthur Conan Doyle
- Canon Expansions — new stories featuring the classic version of the Sherlock Holmes character
- Revamps & New Spins — different character takes or settings, often modernized, from the original
- Related Characters — comics and manga with lead characters who aren’t Sherlock Holmes or John Watson, but who are closely related
- Webcomics & Fan Work — Online, webcomic, and fan versions of Sherlock Holmes in comics
The site includes, where available, information on reprint versions so current readers can find copies of the stories. Follow @Sherlock_Comics on Twitter for updates.
