Sherlock isn’t the only Holmes who goes around thwarting the forces of evil, you know. Sometimes it is his brother Mycroft who does exactly that, on a grander scale, as you’ll soon see, when Titan Comics publishes their eagerly-anticipated MYCROFT HOLMES: THE APOCALYPSE HANDBOOK #1 of 5, written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Raymond Obstfeld, with art by Joshua Cassara.
“Basketball legend, novelist, and superstar polymath Kareem Abdul-Jabbar brings his take on Sherlock Holmes’ older brother to comics at last! An all-new adventure set in the world of the bestselling Mycroft Holmes novel, The Apocalypse Handbook, sees the diffident, brilliant Mycroft pulled into a globe-spanning adventure at the behest of Queen Victoria and a secret organization at the heart of the British government. A madman is on the loose with civilization-destroying weapons, each two hundred years in advance of the status quo. Can the smartest man in England set aside his idle, womanizing ways for long enough to track down the foe that may be his match?”
MYCROFT HOLMES: THE APOCALYPSE HANDBOOK #1 of 5 drops on August 3rd, so be ready! This comic is intended for mature readers. Please read responsibly.
