Sherlock Holmes: Dark Detective - Chimera
The critically acclaimed Australian graphic novel arrives on America's shores!
Holmes and Watson are introduced to an impossible crime; a killing by a mythological creature; the dreaded Chimera, part lion, part scorpion, part goat! But even if the death is some sort of sick hoax, it still means a hideous murder has taken place, which Holmes must solve. However dark forces swirl about the case, and an unsuspecting Holmes, besieged by doubts, has yet to contend directly with the most dramatic of those forces: Professor James Moriarty!
A must for any Sherlock Holmes fan's library collection. Released on newsstands in Australia, this will be the first time it is available outside of the country. Described by writer Christopher Sequeira as “Hammer Horror meets Holmes”, the series has received numerous accolades from many Holmesian followers. Collects issues 1-4.
