This volume contains four of the greatest Sherlock Holmes novels penned by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is the classic detective chiller. The Baskerville family is haunted by a phantom beast which roams the mist-enshrouded wilds of Dartmoor. Now the hound seems to be stalking the young Sir Henry, new heir to the Baskerville estate. Only Sherlock Holmes can solve the mystery. In "The Valley of Fear" a cipher message and a horrible murder begin this dark, powerful tale in which Sherlock Holmes faces his old arch-enemy Professor Moriarty once more. "A Study in Scarlet" introduced the great scientific detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Dr Watson, his friend and chronicler, to the reading public. "The Sign of the Four" presents the detective with one of his greatest challenges - solving the theft of the great Agra treasure in India.

Publishers Weekly, 2009-08-24 This better than average comics version of the quintessential 1901 Sherlock Holmes novel shows the first private detective's cool rationality confronting gibbering horror in order to thwart an ancient curse, a hound from hell that kills the male heads of a wealthy family. Patriarch Sir Charles Baskerville just having been frightened to death, Holmes and Dr. Watson set out to protect the family heir, Sir Henry. Few trappings of gothic mystery are missing from the action, but they are countered by Holmes's instructions that Watson should observe closely and analyze skeptically everything he sees. Edginton's script is much closer to Conan Doyle's original than most adaptations, although that does mean that the characters get to talk a lot. Culbard's energetic layouts and darkly sinister backgrounds are effective; when he turns to the story's people, unfortunately, the Seth-like brushwork stretches their heads until they look like animated kidney beans. Overall, though, Hound gives modern readers a taste of what makes Sherlock Holmes an immortal character. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
