A mysterious break-in at a bank… Some enigmatic symbols… Hidden dangers… Could the case of the ‘Blind Banker’ be too dangerous even for Holmes and Watson to handle? The second incredible manga adaptation of the hit TV show starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman!
I’m still a big fan of Kadokawa’s Sherlock (published by Titan Comics); most of my complaints are due to the foibles of the television series. The Blind Banker continues this excellent adaptation, with artwork that depicts the distinctive leading actors, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, through Japanese eyes. Sherlock Holmes himself comes off as vulpine, an intelligent and slightly menacing gleam in his eye as he struts, cogitates, and deceives his way through each strange mystery. I haven’t seen “The Blind Banker” as a television episode yet, so it will be interesting to compare it to its Manga incarnation.
Final Verdict: 3 out of 5.
Sherlock: The Blind Banker #1 can be found at Titan Comics
