The Great Detective and The Devil

~~ Click on the image for biggie ~~

Hello Pulp Friends,

   It's a Great Detective inspired Pulp Sunday with my most recent covers for the new Sherlock Holmes mini - THE LIVERPOOL DEMON - that started this last December.

   The book - published by Dynamite Ent. - is written by the fantastic - and Holmes veteran - Leah Moore & John Reppion, richly illustrated by Matt Triano with colors provided by Brennan Wagner, and letters by the talented Simon Bowland.

   Issue 2 will be in stores this month so I thought to give you a round up of the covers for issues 2, 3 and 4 and some quick synopsis (here as chapters) for each issue so you can add to your pull list: it's a great read!

Chapter 2: The streets of Liverpool are abuzz with rumors of a demon known as Spring Heeled Jack loose in the city. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson visit the city Bridewell to examine the body of one of Jack's supposed victims but find the officer in change, Inspector Thornton, unimpressed by The Great Detective's reputation. Meanwhile, a collection of mysterious, eldritch Australian Aboriginal artifacts arrive at the William Brown Museum while, in the city's underworld, crime lord Mr. Drummond comes up with a novel solution to the problem of a lost dog.

Chapter 3: At William Brown Museum, Holmes and Watson examine the clawed remains of curator Christopher Connor and find themselves on the trail of a mysterious missing object. Inspector Thornton has to deal with the bloody aftermath of crime lord Drummond's somewhat unorthodox approach to dog fighting, while down at the docks a visit is paid to a vessel by the name of Matilda Briggs.

Chapter 4: Drummond, now on the run, seeks shelter in Hitchcock's Menagerie, but how long will it be before Inspector Thornton tracks him down? The final piece of the puzzle falls into place for Holmes as he and Watson return to the scene of Tom Christian's murder. Yet the route they take is far from straight and perhaps more dangerous than even the Great Detective could imagine.

Have a wonderful PULP SUNDAY, everyone, and don't forget:
THE BLACK BEETLE NO WAY OUT #1 is coming out in stores this week! :D
