    The ArtworkThe Artwork in Moriarty: The Clockwork Empire is fantastic. The opening few pages show us Mr. Hyde attacking London's China Town and the panels are all in shadow and have a wonderful murky quality to them which adds to the mayhem that is about to happen. By comparison, the panels set in the Diogenes Club are bright and colourful but with their own distinctive look and style as we see some nice period work that accurately depicts the fashions of London in 1899.

    Moriarty: Clockwork Empire #1 blends the classics to craft something new. At its core, it is a loving callback to some of the greatest stories of old, including Sherlock Holmes and Jekyll and Hyde, within a slightly changed world. But it is clear that buried further is more than just homages. Theres a mystery to the tale that the opening issue only scratches the surface of. Some of the real surprises remain hidden, with this first chapter excellently piquing my interest. Read Full Review
