A Study in Emerald Reviews
I want to live in Neil Gaiman's head for a day. He has such an incredible imagination! I loved this story and enjoyed the art as well.
I haven't read any Lovecraft yet but I really enjoyed this retelling of A Study in Scarlet. The world that Gaiman and the illustrators manged to build in this short graphic novel was so interesting. The wasn't insanely text heavy which I really appreciated. (Nothing drags more than a graphic novel that is just as wordy as a book.)

A fantastic adaptation of Gaiman's short story. I've always loved Rafael Albuquerque's art, and this does not disappoint. I would love to see more from this world.
Recently while listening to a podcast, I discovered that Neil Gaiman had written a re-telling, or pastiche, of one of the Sherlock Holmes’ stories, “A Study in Scarlet.” It can be found online for free here, and this version is actually printed like an actual newspaper with ads and all. However, there are other versions as well: a graphic novel, an audiobook, the version found in Shadows Over Baker Street where it was first found, and Amazon has it as an ebook that’s listed as 80 pages long?
