BH fans will recall we gave Watson and Holmes #1- 5/5 stars
Honestly this books art, story and characterization seamlessly blend to add some well needed diversity to the comic book medium. While I can’t recommend this book to everyone especially those who need bolts of lightning or flying people to enjoy a comic book. Those looking for something truly different from anything currently offered by DC or Marvel comics, this is the book for you! Watson and Holmes is a very creative and ambitious concept, Bollers, Mendoza and Leonardi thankfully deliver on all fronts BIG TIME! Read the whole review here!
