SHERLOCK Returns to Comics with Sana Takeda Cover



From Titan Comics—


Titan Comics is thrilled to announce the next Sherlock manga adaptation, Sherlock: The Great Game! With stunning covers from Eisner-nominated artist Sana Takeda (Monstress) and Piotr Kowalski (Dark Tower, Image Comics’ SEX), this brand-new series follows the smash-hit success of Titan Comics’ Sherlock: A Study in Pink and Sherlock: The Blind Banker!

Titan Comics’ manga comic series, illustrated by celebrated manga artist, Jay., adapts the episodes of the smash-hit Hartswood Films TV show starring Sherlock Holmes as played by Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) and Dr John Watson as played by Martin Freeman (The Hobbit)! The Sherlock TV episodes are co-created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who), and Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen) who wrote The Great Game episode, and are based on the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories – reimagining Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson’s adventures in 21st Century London. The fourth series premiered on 1 January 2017 and the last episode, “The Final Problem” aired on 15 January 2017 to critical acclaim.

In The Great Game, someone is causing trouble for Sherlock Holmes and John Watson – and innocent victims are caught in the middle…but who is the villain and what is his link to Sherlock and John?

The Sherlock: The Great Game manga comic series will feature all new covers by a host of top comics talent including fan favourite artist Sana Takeda (Monstress), alongside Simon Myers (Doctor Who) and Verity Glass (Assassin’s Creed)!

Sherlock The Great Game #1 hits comic stores on August 9, 2017 and will also be available on digital devices.
