THE ADVENTURES OF SHAKESPEARE & WATSON:

DETECTIVES OF MYSTERY

Master Detectives Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson have traveled back to William Shakespeare’s era to solve The Riddle of a Thousand Faces, but Professor Moriarty springs a clever ruse, breaking Sherlock’s “time cane,” causing a “temporal storm” that sends Sherlock and Moriarty to times unknown, and Shakespeare and Watson to the present. Now, the unorthodox partners have formed a detective agency in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to fight crime while trying to figure out a way to get back to their own eras.

In an alternative Steampunk universe (c.1885), the plans for Captain Nemo’s mysterious Nautilus submarine have been stolen from the British Secret Service. There is only one man who can solve the case, Sherlock Holmes. With his bionic side-kick Doctor Watson, and his brilliant and lethal sister, Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock unravels a mystery that will shake the foundation of the British Empire.

Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.

“Sherlock Holmes vs. Skeletor” makes for a quite an interesting / humorous comic strip combination. Check out a couple more panels and buy the book HERE.

I am skeptical, but Jekyl was good from the few episodes I’ve seen. BBC is pumping out some quality material it seems.

I desire this on BBC America right now.
