This remarkable comic is the first African-American Sherlock Holmes series set in Harlem, NYC. The plots are written by genuine fans of the originals, the art is amazing, the story is unfolding in unexpected ways.
WATSON AND HOLMES, by Karl Bollers & Rick Leonardi, is a re-envisioning of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson as African Americans living in New York City’s famous Harlem district. Watson, an Afghanistan war vet, works in an inner-city clinic; Holmes, a local P.I. takes unusual cases. When one of them ends up in Watson’s emergency room, the unlikely duo strike up a partnership to find a missing girl. Watson And Holmes bump heads along the way as they enter a labyrinth of drugs, guns, gangs and a conspiracy that goes higher and deeper than they could have imagined.
The creative team has had so much support for their online versions that they are looking to print these fantastic graphic offerings and sell them in brick and mortar comic shops.
