Coming in 2011 is the second volume in Millennial Concepts' graphic novel/TPB series, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Mr. Holmes & Dr. Watson.

So far, Mr. Holmes & Dr. Watson: Their Strangest Cases is the best and most consistent seller of all of our TPB/graphic novels.

The Napoleon of Crime collects five classic clashes between Holmes and Watson and their legendary nemesis, Professor Moriarty, the mathematical genius turned criminal mastermind.

The stories originally appeared in the short-lived 1950s newspaper strip, rendered by the late, great Gil Kane, Mike Sekowsky and Frank Giacoia.

During the original run of the strip, the art was credited solely to Frank Giacoia even though Mr. Kane and Mr. Sekowsky were the primary artists.

Our first volume, Mr. Holmes & Dr. Watson: Their Strangest Cases was the first time full credit was given to Mr. Kane and Mr. Sekowsky. The strip was written by entertainment veteran Edith Meiser who had also produced the long-running radio drama, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

As was done with Mr. Holmes & Dr. Watson: Their Strangest Cases, the art in The Napoleon of Crime has been digitally enhanced and reformatted to fit a graphic novel layout.

Also included are two little-seen stories by Mike Sekowsky that originally appeared in in the New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, from 1961.



The cover of Mr. Holmes & Dr. Watson: The Napoleon of Crime is by Melissa Martin-Ellis with addditional elements by Darryl Banks and Mike Sekowsky.



The Mr. Holmes & Dr. Watson collections appeal not just to Holmesians but also to classic comic strip connoisseurs.

The final page count and cover price have yet to be set. Stay tuned.
