A Study in Emerald graphic novel pits Holmes against Lovecraftian horrors

Dark Horse Comics is adapting an excellent short story by Neil Gaiman that weaves together two indelible mythoi: the gaslit Victorian world of Sherlock Holmes and the dark, cosmic horror of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu-verse.

A Study in Emerald is a supernatural mystery set in the world of Sherlock Holmes and H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. The heart-pounding tale features the brilliant detective and his faithful partner as they attempt to solve a horrific murder of cosmic proportions. The complex investigation takes the Baker Street investigators from the slums of Whitechapel all the way to the Queen’s Palace.

I first read the Hugo Award-winning “A Study in Emerald” in the genre-bending short story anthology Shadows Over Baker Street, which I cannot recommend strongly enough for fans of either Lovecraft or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s erudite mysteries. (Turns out, it’s also been adapted into a board game.)

The new graphic novel adaptation by Gaiman himself will feature art from Eisner-winning DC Comics artist Rafael Albuquerque, who also did the cover. The adaptation also features composition contributions from Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special #1 writer Rafael Scavone and coloring by Black Hammer and Hellboy artist Dave Stewart.

The 80-page, hardcover Gaiman Library installment will be available June 20, 2018, for $17.99 retail.
