    You could almost do a comparison of the panels with the images used on the show. You willfind them to be quite matching. It is the first time for me to read a comic that I have seen the actual televised episode from. I find it intriguing just how much effort someone is able to put in recreating these exact images for a comic. This is definitely one for the fans of Sherlock and hoarders of all collectibles regarding the great Sherlock Holmes and the TV series. In conclusion, Sherlock: The Blind Bankerstands perfectly on its own without the TV series just the same. A great read, wonderful art and a comic I am eager to read the next issues of!

    All-Comic - Matthew Strackbein Jan 7, 2017

    “Well done!” to the creative team for doing the beloved Sherlock justice, Titan Comics for making them available, and the cast and crew of the show worth adapting in the first place. This is just issue #1 of 6, so theres still more to come! And, after all, The Blind Banker is one of the standout episodes from the first three seasons of the BBC program. There are moments coming up from the show that will be interesting to see how they are handled in subsequent issues. Hows that for an all-new level of interest for something you already know and love so much? Read Full Review

    Sherlock: The Blind Banker #1 isn't a horrible book, in fact, it's an enjoyable story. It just has so much working against it as a casual read in your comic book stack. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Rick Jan 7, 2017

    I'm still a big fan of Kadokawa's Sherlock (published by Titan Comics); most of my complaints are due to the foibles of the television series. The Blind Banker continues this excellent adaptation, with artwork that depicts the distinctive leading actors, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, through Japanese eyes. Sherlock Holmes himself comes off as vulpine, an intelligent and slightly menacing gleam in his eye as he struts, cogitates, and deceives his way through each strange mystery. I haven't seen The Blind Banker as a television episode yet, so it will be interesting to compare it to its Manga incarnation. Read Full Review
