Sherlock Holmes died fighting Professor Moriarty in the Reichenbach Falls. At least, that's what the press claims. However, Holmes is alive and well and taking advantage of his presumed death to travel the globe. Unfortunately, Holmes's plans are thwarted when a plague of vampirism haunts Britain.

    The art in "Sherlock Holmes and the Vampires of London" was my favorite part. There were some interesting ideas presented, but overall I felt there was a serious lack of Watson, who is needed to bring a warmer side to the cold-blooded chemist. Read Full Review

    Also, the vampire stuff feels very ill thought-out, with random vampiric powers pulled out of nowhere with no explanation and the surprisingly unused revelation that Van Helsing was a real guy in this universe (a fact that has nothing to do with anything). On the artwork side of things, there's not much to say; Holmes looks really stiff and wooden in the comic, with way too many lines on his face that really make him look inhuman on the whole, and the artist seems more suited to big landscape drawings than close ups. So, yeah; an overall dull mystery with a flat protagonist that ignores both its own revelations and series core elements in exchange for exactly nothing. Needless to say, Sherlock Holmes and the Vampires of London is not recommended. Read Full Review
