PREVIEW: Sherlock Comic Book
Image Comics New Take on Literature’s Original Super-Villain
As most of you know, I am a huge fan of Image Comics. They are a very progressive publisher born from the idea of giving the little guy a shot in the comic biz, and getting creator owned properties in to the mainstream. With that in mind, I am very excited by the announcement of their latest comic based on the villain created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. MORIARTY, a collaboration from the up and coming creative team of writer Daniel Corey and artist Anthony Diecidue is to set to debut in May.
This new series will follow the world’s greatest criminal mastermind as he adjusts to life without a foil. Although the Sherlock Holmes Novels covered a great deal of ground, it left one question unanswered: What would happen if Professor Moriarty finally achieved mortal victory over his ages old nemesis?
“Would Moriarty revel in victory, spend the rest of his life smoking cigars and sleeping on stacks of money?” “Probably not. I think he’d fall on hard times, and it would take one heck of an event - say, a World War - to jolt him back to life.” Daniel Corey in the official press release.
Corey continued, "Moriarty's not an evil person - not in his own mind. In working with Anthony Diecidue to create this series, I thought we’d take a look at things from Moriarty’s perspective, get to know his thoughts. Along the way, we could see him delve into some mind-blowing deductive reasoning, get into a few sword fights, decipher riddles and discover technology 50 years ahead of its time. Would we expect any less from the original super-villain?"
MORIARTY #1, a 32 page full-color science fiction noir comic book, is in stores in May 2011 for $2.99.
