    This is a very good adaptation of Gaiman's Doyle/Lovecraft crossover story. It does a very good job of presenting a complex plot in a short graphic format, and presenting an alternate world without too much explanation. I didn't love the art, but it presented the story serviceably. It'...

    Kind of a lesser effort by Gaiman. Can't help but feel like the adaptation script must have left a few things out--this is a pretty choppy read that doesn't really flow very smoothly. Nice twist at the end (I wasn't expecting that), but otherwise not the greatest. ...

    Recently while listening to a podcast, I discovered that Neil Gaiman had written a re-telling, or pastiche, of one of the Sherlock Holmes? stories, ?A Study in Scarlet.? It can be found online for free here, and this version is actually printed like an actual newspaper with ads a...

    Sherlock + Cthulhu = A Study in Emerald. I went into it knowing that it was some sort of Doyle/Lovecraft mash-up, but that was about it. I had no idea what Gaiman was trying to pull off as far as plot goes, and I'm glad I didn't. Because while this was exactly what it purported ...

    A Study in Emerald is a love story to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and H.P. Lovecraft. It?s a beautiful collision of styles that creates an incredibly atmospheric and engaging mystery. It combines the best aspects of Doyle?s mysteries and Lovecraft?s horror making A Study in Emerald on...

    As a standalone, this issue wasn't really compelling, it lacked something I cannot yet determine. Being a huge fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle , Neil Gaiman and of course H.P. Lovecraft (even if I haven't read my Cthulhu yet, yeah I know, shame) I was really excited for this read but it ...

    Issuing a pricy hardcover for what amounts to a 64 page special after you remove the sketches, faux Victorian ads, and multiple blank pages used as chapter breaks is a blatant cash-in on Gaiman's name, and a shoddy one at that. Many panels uses watercolor washes in place of background ...

    To be very honest I bought this comic for my daughter as a Christmas gift as ever since Sherlock she is a fan of things Sherlock Holmes, only she does have trouble with reading the originals which she finds tedious sometimes. Hence a modern update. Sherlock Holmes & Watson the t...

    I didn't know anything about this before reading it. It's a good way to read this one as the surprises are enjoyable. This seems loosely based on the Sherlock Holmes story 'a Study in Scarlet'. It is then blended with H P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu, which I still need to read. It turns into ...

    This is a splendidly superb adaptation of one of Gaiman?s finest stories. The elevator pitch is: Sherlock Holmes meets Cthulhu. It's not the first time such a concept has been put forward, and it very likely won't be the last. The background of the story is that Lovecraft?s Grea...

    Forget Pokmon?it?s my mission in life to catch all Holmesian graphic novels, particularly those that are not adaptations of canonical stories, but rather additions to it (bonus points if the art is so stellar that I can get completely immersed in Victorian London or if there are ...

    I was about to give up on these Dark Horse adaptations of Neil Gaiman short stories, but the pretty good mash-up of Sherlock Holmes and H.P. Lovecraft in this volume means I'll have to keep checking them out. The little twist at the end actually caught me off guard and elevated the sto...

    An adaptation of Neil Gaiman's short story from a Sherlock Holmes anthology. It mashs up Doyle's and Lovecraft's most popular creations. The art is wonderfully moody, giving London a spooky, foggy vibe. I didn't see the twist coming at all, although I would say it could have been deliv...

    Full review here I always loved reading graphic novels and I noticed that one of the challenges in this medium is to convey an original story while having a clear storyline in just a few pages. Neil Gaiman, Rafael Alburerque and company did just that. They manage to set up the world b...

    I want to start by saying that I know nothing when it comes to Lovecraft. I'm aware that there's a green, octopus-looking creature called the "cthulhu" that lives in the ocean, and that's literally the extent of my knowledge. I've always been intrigued by his stories, but I've never re...

    "A Study In Emerald" is Neil Gaiman's take on mashing together the worlds of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and H.P. Lovecraft. He does a great job with it. Imagine a Sherlock Holmes story set in a Lovecraftian Cthulhu world. Gaiman nails the setting and the story perfectly, blending it wel...
