Rafael Albuquerque Illustrating New Neil Gaiman Adaptation

Dark Horse has announced it will publish a graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Hugo award-winning short story ‘A Study in Emerald.’ The graphic novel will include art by Rafael Albuquerque (Ei8ht, American Vampire).

Published in 2003, ‘A Study in Emerald’ first appeared in Shadows Over Baker Street, a collection of short stories that mixed the worlds of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes book series with H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos. An online version was later published that takes the form of a period-appropriate newspaper.

The story follows a man who becomes acquainted with Sherlock Holmes. Holmes is quickly ensnared in an otherworldly crime drama when Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard comes to the amateur detective seeking aid with a brutal Whitechapel murder. The story’s plot, and its title, bear similarities to A Study in Scarlet, the first story to ever bring together Sherlock Holmes and his confidant Dr. Watson.


A Study in Emerald will be available for purchase on June 20, 2017. The hardcover graphic novel will run 80 pages and retail for $17.99.
