The manga adaptation of BBC’s “Sherlock” series have proven to be a hit, with a fourth series announced to arrive in February 2017.
The latest issue of Kadokawa’s “Young Ace” magazine revealed that the third manga starring Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman Dr. John Watson will adapt “A Scandal in Belgravia,” the first episode from the TV show’s second season. Titled “Belgravia no Shūbun,” the manga will be drawn by “Jay,” the same artist who handled the show’s previous adaptations.
The first “Sherlock” manga adaptation, “A Study in Pink,” arrived in 2012, adapting the series’ first episode. The second manga debuted in 2013 and adapted the second episode, “The Blind Banker,” while the third manga installment adapted the series’ third episode, “The Great Game,” in 2014. While no further adaptations have been announced, it’s a logical deduction that plans are afoot for further manga installments based on the show’s remaining episodes.
Titan Comics reprinted the first manga as a six-issue English language miniseries in 2016, with plans for a collected edition in 2017, along with a miniseries for the second manga. Titan has the rights to the third manga as well, but has not yet announced whether it holds the English language rights for the fourth.
The fourth season of “Sherlock” debuted January 1 on the BBC.
