3 out of 5 stars on GoodReads

A good retelling of the Hound of the Baskervilles in comic book form! The artwork is dark and creepy, giving deep shadows to everything, and perfectly reflecting the mysterious nature of the story.
I thought that Holmes’ character is represented beautifully both through the artwork and the dialogue. His austere personality and furtive energy comes across strongly on every page!
I felt like the plot moved a little too quickly, barely having time to explain the basics of the plotlines. There’s not enough time to get attached to the characters or really get immersed in the menacing moors. I wish the book were longer, so that more attention could be paid to some of the details. But of course, it’s always difficult to condense a classic story into a smaller format.

I really enjoyed revisiting this favorite classic, and I loved the expressive artwork!
