Manga Adaptations of Sherlock Coming to UK & US!

This June, Titan Comics is thrilled to unveil Sherlock: A Study In Pink – a manga comic series adapting the episodes of the smash-hit Hartswood Films TV show starring Sherlock Holmes as played by Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game; Doctor Strange) and Dr John Watson as played by Martin Freeman (The Hobbit; Captain America: Civil War)!

Originally airing in 2010, the TV show is a reimagining of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic, following Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson’s adventures in 21st Century London, written by Doctor Who showrunner, Steven Moffat. It’s run for three series so far, plus a festive special on New Year’s Day, while a fourth series is due to air next year.

Announced at ComicsPRO retailer summit in Portland, Oregon, the manga comic adaptations of Sherlock episodes co-created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss (Cold War; Sleep No More), illustrated by acclaimed manga illustrator Jay. They will be translated into English for the first time and published in the US and UK with extended page-counts – perfect for comics and manga audiences alike!

The comic series will feature all new art and covers by a host of top comics talent including fan favorite artist Alice X. Zhang, who has covered all the ongoing Doctor Who Titan titles; Peter Capaldi also commissioned her to create a piece of art for the Doctor Who Series 9 steelbook, out next month from Amazon.

The first story, Sherlock: A Study In Pink #1 hits stores in June 2016 and will also be available on digital devices.
