In the late 19th century, Great Britain rules over a quarter of the world. Nobles sit in their fancy homes in comfort and luxury, while the working class slaves away at their jobs. When young Albert James Moriarty's upper-class family adopts two lower-class orphans, the cruelty the boys experience at his family's hands cements Albert's hatred of the nobility he was born into. He asks the older of the two boys-who has a genius mind and a killer instinct-to help him rid the world of evil, starting with Albert's own family!
For older teen audiences.

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Oct 4, 2020

    Overall, the theme of the series is classism and how James Moriarty is aiming to cure his country of it. He's a patriot to himself, but a scourge to the upper-class. Additionally, the balance between Moriarty's charisma and ability to move through the world of elites with his disdain for the rich is done in such a way that it never feels forces or contrived. Truthfully, Moriarty the Patriot Volume 1is a must-buy for fans of the Sherlock Holmes' literary universe and those looking to eat the rich alike. Read Full Review

    Moriarty the Patriot's reinterpretation of the eponymous character to examine themes of class and privilege serves as a really refreshing recontextualization of the Sherlock mythos, and there's still so much left to explore. Read Full Review
