As part of its 10th anniversary celebrations, SelfMadeHero has reissued a quartet of acclaimed Sherlock Holmes adaptations by Ian Edgington and I.N.J. Culbard in all-new pulpy, pocket-sized editions, priced £9.99. The original editions, published between 2009 and 2011, were a central part of SelfMadeHero’s early publishing programme.

These concise, page-turning graphic novels bring new life to Arthur Conan Doyle’s four full-length classics A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of the Four, The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Valley of Fear, as Holmes tackles the mysteries of the disappearance of an army officer and an unblemished body in a blood-stained room, takes to the moors for an encounter with a killer hound, and solves the riddle of an American gentleman gruesomely murdered by unknown assailants.

Here’s where it all begins…
