    A brilliantly twisted adventure with Holmes' nemesis illustrated in equally amazing artwork. This is no mystery: this is a must have. Fans of Holmes, the Victorian era, or anyone who wants a superior read, go no further. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    If you haven't already had the pleasure, then you really need to get a copy of this book. It begins with a gorgeous front cover, full of atmosphere from Francesco Francavilla, and the interior art and colouring by Daniel Indro and Josan Gonzalez is just as good as well. There's a gothic tone to it all, and it's perfect for the wonderful tale that is being spun by writer David Liss. I'm really surprised at myself that I've been waxing so lyrical about this book, but what can I do? I bought it, read it, and loved it. I'm just glad that I've finished with my review, as now I have the chance to read it all over again. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Shane Hoffman Feb 11, 2014

    Writer David Liss does a fantastic job in continuing the intelligent speech and conversational skills of the beloved characters from the novels. The banter back and forth between characters is not far off from what you have seen on screen in the recent films. It's witty yet delightfully intelligent and intellectual to a certain degree.

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Feb 12, 2014

    The story itself is a good one as von Hohenheim is laid out as such a complete bastard that Moriarty is a fairly decent guy in comparison and I had no problem in rooting for his success. Moriarty taking Udo under his wing and setting his plans in motion against Von Hohenheim were played out in a nicely logical flow, as is appropriate given our protagonist. All in all, a very good issue, I'll be looking out for #3 to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Mar 22, 2014

    This issue surpasses the first issue. In only a little over a page it uses Moriartys narration to catch you up on the story, so it becomes unnecessary to read the first issue. You can jump in with this issue, and I recommend doing so if youre a fan of Moriarty and enjoyed the Image Comics series. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Feb 11, 2014

    Moriarty Lives has slowed down dramatically in this issue as despite having some interesting and energetic moments it mostly felt like a set-up issue. Due to this I can't recommend this issue. Read Full Review
