    Aaron Campbell's art continues to remind me of the gritty, detailed, moody work of Lee (Joker) Bermejo. He captures the period clothing pretty well (or it's close enough to convince), not to mention the decor and architecture. He bathes the story in darkness as well, enhancing the tension in the drama. I also appreciate how none of the characters are behemoths of strength or deals or physical perfection. These aren't super-hero figures dressed up for a Holmes drama. Instead, there's a nice variety of figures and faces to be found. The John Cassaday cover sums this issue up nicely, and I'm pleased that this title seems to be spared Dynamite's usual variant-cover marketing approach. Read Full Review
