Sloppy At Best,
This review is from: Sherlock Holmes & Kolchak The Night Stalker: Cry Of Thunder (Paperback)
No work of the written word can be taken seriously if the "author(s)" don't take the time to simply proofread their material. If the "creators" don't value it enough to check simple spelling and grammar, then why should anyone else value it enough to purchase it? Here is an especially bad blurb from Holmes: "Know this, your conscious will never be clear for aiding in bringing upon this new age of bloodshed to the empire." I believe they meant to use the word "conscience" not "conscious". Grammatically, the rest of that run-on is a train wreck. What "publisher" allows anything to go to press in that condition? Aside from the fifth grade english blunders, Holmes exhibits some very un-holmes behaviour which is common when someone other than Conan-Doyle handles him. Both he and Watson blurt out some decidedly modern speech. The artwork becomes a bit monotonous with it's deep blacks and ruddy washes. It is often difficult to differentiate between characters. The flow of the "action" is choppy and at times incoherent. It was difficult to take this in one sitting. After setting it aside many times, I was finally able to finish it off. Holmes is in the public domain and suffering for it.
