“The easiest way to attract a crowd is to let it be known that at a given time and a given place someone is going to attempt something that in the event of failure will mean sudden death.” – Harry Houdini
Well, no one died last month but our new mash-up series featuring Sherlock Holmes, Harry Houdini, magic, suspense, drugs, spiritualism and death did debut with great acclaim and sold out at every convention we attended. The question by all was whether the follow-up issue would contain just as much fun and mystery?
The answer: elementary, of course.
Readers will be able to continue experiencing the forced partnership of these two great literary figures next Wednesday (November 12th) when SHERLOCK HOLMES vs HARRY HOUDINI #2 will be released at comic book shops around the world.
In HOLMES v HOUDINI #2, we pick up after a grotesque murder (suicide by axe?) at Harry Houdini’s show. The legendary magician clashes with Sherlock Holmes over the great detective’s refusal to allow Houdini to help bring the perpetrator to justice. But the proud Houdini won’t take no for an answer, leading to an epic game of cat-and-mouse in London’s dangerous streets.
