GRAPHIC NOVEL REVIEW: Victorian Undead: Sherlock Holmes Vs Zombies - Ian Edginton and Davide Fabbri

Release Date: 17/12/10


In 1854, a meteor streaked across London's skies, bringing with it a zombie plague. For twenty years, Her Majesty's Secret Service kept the threat under control. But now dastardly fiend Moriarty has begun using the zombies in an attempt to overthrow the Victorian Government. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson must face off against their favorite foe, MI-5 and zombies at the same time.


If you love a quirky title, then it pretty much won’t come any quirkier than this offering from Titan. Within this title is a tale that were Doyle so inclined would have generated a huge amount of interest and when backed with other Holmes titles in the supernatural area (also released by Titan) you know that you’ve got something fun to enjoy that builds upon the mythos already established.

Finally add the huge artistic talent to the mix alongside some great writing and the reader is in for a hell of a ride by the seat of their pants in this adventure for the Victorian age. This made this a real joy and a title that many more will get a huge amount of fun from due to the quirkiness and seriously good British humour within.
