Marcie Klinger is a freelance artist who also did the art for Mr. Kuhns’ Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Crystal Blue Bottle. See her artwork at http://www.marcieklinger.com/ ***Spoilers Possible*** The year is 1885; the city, London, England. There has been a rash of grave robberies across Greater London. Holmes is captive to his worst enemy: ennui. To counterbalance his extreme boredom, he is back to shooting up with a seven-per-cent solution of cocaine. Desperate to end this latest battle with the drug, Doctor Watson tries to interest Holmes in the grave robberies. Holmes states there is little difference between archeology and grave robbing, and it isn’t a crime. Then Inspector Bradstreet arrives with the latest news. Another grave has been robbed, but this time a caretaker is murdered. Holmes discovers that the assailant is over eight feet tall and super strong. Victoria Walton, whose grandfather Captain Walton had been involved in the original account of Frankenstein, gives Holmes the details of that case. Now Holmes realizes that someone is creating a female creature, and that the undying monster has not only survived, but is involved with this mad scientist. The story explores what a chance, or perhaps not a chance, meeting between Frankenstein’s Monster and another mad scientist might mean. If this madman succeeds, the monster will have a mate. And possibly, the two might produce children! There is a delightful twist at the end I found refreshing. I leave it to the reader to discover just what that is! The only complaint story-wise is that it is simply too short for maximum character development. It is well written, but hampered by not being able to write and show more of the story. I would urge the author to expand on this idea. The artwork is very nice and compliments the story beautifully. Further collaboration between writer and artist would be most welcome indeed. For shortness and that alone, I dock the book one star. Four out of five stars for a book I will read again, I am positive. The book is recommended to lovers of Holmes and lovers of Frankenstein as well. Quoth the Raven…

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Sherlock Holmes and the Horror of Frankenstein crosses over two of literature's greatest icons in comic form. The plot is pretty much as you'd expect - Frankenstein's Monster turns out to be alive following the events of the original novel, and is stealing female bodies to create a bride for himself, and Holmes and Watson aren't too pleased about it. The characters are pretty much true to how they were originally intended by Arthur Conan Doyle and Mary Shelley. Marcie Klinger's artwork is well-d Sherlock Holmes and the Horror of Frankenstein crosses over two of literature's greatest icons in comic form. The plot is pretty much as you'd expect - Frankenstein's Monster turns out to be alive following the events of the original novel, and is stealing female bodies to create a bride for himself, and Holmes and Watson aren't too pleased about it. The characters are pretty much true to how they were originally intended by Arthur Conan Doyle and Mary Shelley. Marcie Klinger's artwork is well-detailed, even if the 2d characters sometimes struggle to mix in with the cgi-rendered backrounds. She pays attention to elements of Sherlockian lore, such as the photograph of Irene Adler in the rooms at Baker Street, and makes sure each character stands out from the others. The placement of speech-balloons is sometimes awkward, as you can sometimes find yourself reading the wrong speech balloon first in a panel, though this isn't very often. What is often are minor spelling and punctuation errors, but as an independent comic without a professional editor it isn't something I'm too upset about, it just pulls me out of the story sometimes. There is no doubt in my mind that Luke Kuhns is a good writer who understands Sherlock Holmes. He has created a fairly solid story which doesn't go into any useless tangents. But the problem with the Frankenstein elements is that he doesn't try anything particularly new with them. In the climax of the comic, the personalities of the monsters changes at the drop of a hat and they turn on their master after he says something they disagree with, despite them being under fire from the great detective. There are title drops of "The Horror of Frankenstein" which are used too many times and becomes redundant. There are a few bumps but with independent comics you can worry too much about these things. I'm sure this comic was fun to produce and it has plenty of work in it for a reasonably short story, and I hope to read more Sherlock graphic novels from this creative team in the future.
