"Culbard's pulpy, golden-age illustration style complements Edginton's sharp eye for pacing to great effect"-Cory Doctorow
BUY 'AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS'
"Gorgeous, thrilling... enthralling" -FPi "his best work to date" -GS "Culbard has had conversations with dead men."-BH
BUY 'THE SIGN OF THE FOUR'
"Both Holmes and Wilde have been sexed and revved up recently in a superficial, flashy Hollywood remake for mall kidults, whereas this graphic novel stays mostly respectful to the original... I was soon won over." -Paul Gravett.
BUY 'A STUDY IN SCARLET'
"As the great detective himself might have said, 'The game is afoot!' as the first ever Sherlock Holmes adventure is brought to life brilliantly in this stunning graphic novel." -Mark Billingham.
BUY 'THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES'
"Holmes enthusiasts will be pleased and relieved by Edginton & Culbard’s back-to-basics approach, retaining the authentic tone and character of Conan Doyle’s original stories; hence no bumbling Doctor Watson nor deer stalker as added in later cinema and theatre versions." – GOSH!
BUY THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
"Films and graphic novels have a lot in common – indeed I could have used much of this as my storyboards. It's terrific to see Wilde's work in this form and it's a great way to reach a wider audience. The visuals are bold and striking and the text very skillfully abridged." - Oliver Parker, director of 'The Importance of Being Earnest', 'An Ideal Husband' and the forthcoming 'Dorian Gray'.
