I'm pleased to say that this is my first post in the long years of lurking around this community!

Seeing as this is a community heavily invested in the trials and tribulations of heroes and their nemeses, there will surely be no small representation in today's category. But on meditating on the subject further (and retreading Alan Moore's fantastic, overstuffed graphic novel, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), I was reminded of an even older rivalry predating superhero comics: That of Sherlock Holmes, great detective, versus James Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime.

So then! Here are seven pages from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 1, Issue 5.

Well... here we are, then. )

I'd like to take a moment to thank the mod team for coming up with these daily themes - it's great inspiration for first time posters!

In LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN #5, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill treat us to a flashback to Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland. This doesn't show how great a detective Sherlock Holmes is, but does show he's not to be underestimated in a knock-down drag-out on a precarious cliff.

Downey is a competant actor who has shown in films such as Chaplin that he can do an English accent, yell about this instead if you want to yell about miscasting.

Greetings True Believers! Here is the actor that has been cast to play Loki in the upcoming Thor movie. He looks reasonable but I see Loki with dark hair. He'll need some hair color. What do you TB's think.

Also, I'm providing the link to the first Sherlock Holmes trailer. Robert Downey Jr. is Holmes and Jude Law is Watson. I'm conflicted, the film looks entertaining but....it doesn't seem like Holmes. I'll be interested to see the comments on it.

Enjoy!

Title: Aetheric Mechanics (Avatar Press, 2008, 46 pages)
Creators: Warren Ellis (writer), Gianluca Pagliarani (pencils)
Availability: In print.

A Sherlock Holmes pastiche as written by Warren Ellis. When I first posted this back at the old comm, I described it as "what awesome will be once it grows hair on its chest and finds the confidence to talk to girls". I stand by this opinion.



It's not what you think.

Anyway -- good book. Lots of fun. Deserves your money.
