It is the dawn of World War I, and Sherlock Holmes has been dead for 20 years.

Holmes' enemy - Professor James Moriarty - is a lost man. MI5 blackmails Moriarty into finding Holmes' long-lost brother, Mycroft, but what at first appears to be a routine case leads to a web of intrigue that involves a psychic box and its creator, a woman from Moriarty's past, and a new villain that threatens to be greater than Moriarty ever was!

MORIARTY is a new science fiction-noir starring the nefarious Professor Moriarty, arch nemesis of Sherlock Holmes, written by DANIEL COREY, with art by ANTHONY DIECIDUE and letters by DAVE LANPHEAR.

    Moriarty: The Dark Chamber is off to a strong and intriguing start. Corey knows his material and handles the character quite well. However, while that's enough to deliver a promising first issue, he'll need to deliver some more on the plotting front with the next issue " though the issue's cliffhanger suggests that things are about to get serious. If he can find a way to further differentiate histale from that crafted by Moore, I'll be convinced that we're on to a winner.Still, it's a very promising start. Read Full Review

    I wanted to love this book being a huge fan of the Sherlock Holmes genre but I found myself on the fence after the first read. I liked the set up and the cast of characters but struggled with some of the pacing and overly buried mystery. Overall, this is a good book and definitely worth your three bucks. I will need more than the first issue to determine if this series is for me and that's generally a good thing. Read Full Review
