    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini were friends in real life, so having the writer's most famous character teaming with Houdini continues to be a weird meta moment, and it continues to bother me. We haven't seen Doctor Watson do much in this series, and aside from the title characters arguing over Holmes's drug addiction and its affects in the story, I wonder why this story couldn't have been Doyle and Houdini solving the mystery with Doyle trying to use the logic and deductive reasoning of Holmes as the basis of the conflict between the two. I like mysteries a great deal, and Sherlock Holmes is always a fun detective to follow as more and more writers develop the character further, but this issue just left me scratching my head, and unless you've committed to the series, or are a die hard fan of either character, you may want to pass on this issue.
