Watson and Holmes: A Study in Black Hits Stores


Sherlock Holmes is capable enough to handle any situation. What's more is that he's been re-imagined in multiple scenarios, places and times, but none of the previous versions have ever presented him as this. New Paradigm Studios announced today the release of their new trade Watson and Holmes: A Study in Black (ISBN 1939516013). It offers the fabled character as an African-American crime solving duo set in modern day Harlem. The trade paperback collects the first 5 issues and is available on Amazon, Comixology and in local comic stores and contains a bonus cover gallery.

New Paradigm Studios CEO, Brandon Perlow explains, “ We started with amazing characters for sure, but it's what we did with them that makes it unique. One eye is always on continuity and the other gets to explore the topics that don't change with time. Evil, honor, and respect are timeless.”

Watson, an Afghanistan war vet, works in an inner-city clinic; Holmes, a local P.I. who takes unusual cases. When one of them ends up in Watson's emergency room, the unlikely duo strike up a partnership to find a missing girl. Watson & Holmes bump heads along the way as they enter a labyrinth of drugs, guns, gangs and a conspiracy that goes higher and deeper than they could have imagined. Containing epilogue issue #5 as well as chock full of extra material on the evolution of a new classic.
