Sherlock Holmes is one of my favorite characters of all time. Not to brag on the subject, but I've read all the Doyle stories multiple times, watched most television and movie adaptations of the Great Detective and even named one of my cats Basil after Basil Rathbone. I love a great Sherlock Holmes story and seeing him work his way through impossible mystery after mystery.
That being said, I felt a little jilted by Victorian Undead Special's lack of a mystery. The pieces were too neatly laid out for Holmes, even if the reader already knew who the culprit was. That was the biggest flaw surrounding Victorian Undead Special. However, besides the lack of mystery in the plot, everything else was as solid as a Victorian crossover zombie story could get. There was continuation of the zombie plot from the original miniseries, solid characterization and a unique explanation for Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde. The biggest upside was the improved art from the original miniseries, which was a major drawback from the original.
Overall, Edginton wrote a great story. Here's to hoping that he's able to successfully build a mystery (which is always the hardest part to get right with Holmes) in his next installment of Victorian Undead.
