Are you a Sherlock fan stuck desperately waiting for season 4? Titan Comics is filling the void with a manga adaptation of your favorite detective, but is it good?
Sherlock: A Study in Pink #1 (Titan Comics)
The issue is about 40 pages and when it says adaptation it means a direct translation from screen to comic pages. This issue is the first 18 minutes of the episode with almost shot-for-shot accuracy. The script is identical to the show and while initially I was disappointed by the lack of originality, further into the issue I realized it would have been criminal to attempt to stray from such caliber of writing. I love Sherlock and even having watched the episodes multiple times I still found this manga adaptation fresh and exciting.
This is a must have for fans of Sherlock, manga, and especially for those who enjoy both. With good art and incredible accuracy in recreating the rush of the show, Sherlock: A Study In Pink is the perfect way to relive the series through an alternate medium.
