The critically acclaimed series returns! London is recovering from the frightful destruction at the hands of Moriarty's undead army, and like their neighbors, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson set about rebuilding their lives. But a rash of murders leads them to believe that a zombie might have survived the quarantine and the hunt begins...leading them to the doorstep of one Dr. Jekyll!

Wildstorm | 40pg. | Color | $4.99 US

Ian Edginton is a great writer, his books like The Establishment and others are hugely underrated, everyone should get exposed to his 2000AD work as well, hopefully we will see a Vertigo monthly from him in the future post-Wildstorm.

Do not dispute me on this, or I will have to pull the windmill/beard rebuttal.

The Red Seas for 2000 AD is a lot of fun, but I have trouble getting excited for any Zombie comic apart from The Walking Dead these days.

That's okay, because it's a Sherlock Holmes story.

It's Sherlock Holmes Vs. Zombies right? I thought that was the high-concept?

I'm a sucker for Sherlock Holmes stories and as an avid zombie aficianado, I generally enjoyed the original miniseries. The only hang-up was the art, which has generally been a weakness of the (now-defunct) Wildstorm line.

Anyways, I'm hoping this is a good pick with Halloween approaching. I have a ton of reviews to catch up on, but there's currently a blood feud going on with my Mac caught in the middle, so I've been largely relying on secondary sources to browse here. I'll definitely make the effort this weekend to get a good review in. I've been dialing it in lately on the Review Group reviews...

Not a fan of House of Mystery. That's Darcie's boat, not mine.

I'll take Sherlock Holmes over just about anything.

Your loss. It's actually pretty good if you like zombies and/or Sherlock Holmes.
