VICTORIAN UNDEAD SPECIAL: SHERLOCK HOLMES vs JEKYLL/HYDE
I remember wanting to check this book out when it started but I spaced it so I was quite curious to read this. I like the concept, Holmes vs Zombies, Jekyll/Hyde, and soon Dracula... it has a LOEG feel to it i suppose. This was a fun little one shot, if I had a complaint it would be that it lacks any the mystery that is synonymous Sherlock Holmes but since you already know that Mr. Hyde is Dr. Jekyll it would be hard to do that I guess. The art was okay, it is hard for me to not picture RDJ as Holmes though... I am not sure I liked the coloring though, it seemed flat to me or something... I am poor at describing artistic crap.
I didn't think this was the best thing ever or anything but I will check out the trade from my library

STORY - 7

ART - 6

OVERALL - 7

Set eleven months after the events of the first Victorian Undead series, the Victorian Undead Special is not as good as the first story, but still enjoyable in its own right.

The way this story is set up created a problem that the first series didn't have to deal with, that being a lack of a sense of mystery on the part of the reader. In the first series the reader knew that Moriarty was the villain behind the events depicted, but so did Holmes and the mystery that he was trying to puzzle out was Moriarty's location. Here the reader knows that Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde are the same person, but the mystery Holmes is dealing with surrounds him trying to figure out how events surrounding Jekyll fit together. As a result, Victorian Undead Special is enjoyable, but nowhere near as compelling as the first series.

6 out of 10
