In 1991, Marvel published WITHIN OUR REACH. All proceeds went to two charities AmFAR for AIDS research and Sempervirens Fund for the preservation of the redwoods. All the creators donated their work, and all licensing was done free of charge.

It includes a Sherlock Holmes story and something called "Brother Elf."

Suzy Kim and Patrick Gabrielli's adaptation of it for The Graphic Canon of Crime and Mystery accentuated those elements with tightly focused panels.

Their take opened in Sherlock Holmes' rooms, on he and Dr. Watson listening to the story of a woman named Helen Stoner.

Her mother had, in India, married a Dr. Roylott.

She'd bequeathed her entire fortune to the doctor, excepting provisions for her two daughters.

Just after returning to England, she'd died.

Things changed in the family. )

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.
