Sherlock Holmes and the Liverpool Demon

I picked up this graphic novel from the local library the last time I was visiting. It is a typical Holmes adventure and beautifully illustrated. The story has Spring Heel Jack appearing in Liverpool with Holmes and Watson stopping over to see if they can solve another mystery.

I found it moved along quickly and had enough of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle influence to feel authentic. I look forward to reading more in the series.
