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.
Very cool! I’ve been a big Sherlock fan for a number of years, and always smiled in my amusement at my local library who had Sherlock Holmes listed in their system as author of “The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes”
I’ve been really enjoying the Moriarity The Patriot anime series, and their take on Sherlock in it. (have not had a chance to read the manga of it yet)
I have read some of the manga, and I’m still not sure what to think of it. Certainly has a lot of fans though!
