"Enola Holmes" graphic novel adaptation coming from IDW EuroComics this October
I think it's been fairly well established that we're fans of high-concept comic stories around here. IDW's EuroComics imprint seem to be scratching that itch lately, what with the announcement of the upcoming The Quest of Ewilan graphic novel adaptation. Following in that vein, IDW have revealed another new graphic novel due this October: Enola Holmes Volume 1: The Case of the Missing Marquess. Adapted by writer and artist Serena Blasco from Nancy Springer's novels, the Enola Holmes series follows the adventures of the title character, who just so happens to be Sherlock Holmes' younger sister.
Yes, that Sherlock Holmes. I love this idea, and I'm totally on board.
IDW’s EuroComics to Unveil
ENOLA HOLMES Graphic Novel in October
Series Adapted from Nancy Springer’s Novels, the Inspiration for the
Announced Film to Star Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown
SAN DIEGO, CA (April 16, 2018) – IDW Publishing's EuroComics imprint has just announced plans to publish a new graphic novel series featuring the adventures of Enola Holmes, kid sister to the world-renowned detective Sherlock Holmes. The graphic novels are adapted from the Nancy Springer stories by writer/artist Serena Blasco.
The first book — The Case of the Missing Marquess — will be released in October. Enola, who’s been raised by her mother in the family’s country manor, wakes on her fourteenth birthday to discover that her mother has disappeared, leaving only a collection of flowers and a coded message book. With Sherlock and Mycroft determined to ship their sister off to a boarding school to make a “real lady” out of her, the independent-minded Enola escapes, displaying a cleverness that impresses even the brilliant Sherlock. Her journey quickly leads her into the dark and sordid neighborhoods of London and she finds herself involved in the kidnapping of a young marquess. Will Enola evade her two brothers and succeed in her new life, even as she continues to follow her mother's trail? This delightfully drawn graphic novel adaptation also includes a portfolio of pages from Enola’s secret notebook.
“Serena Blasco’s watercolors are perfectly suited for the story,” says EuroComics art director Lorraine Turner. “She draws the reader into what it must have been like for a girl to navigate Victorian-era England.”
Wherever Enola Holmes goes, mystery is abound. Her next case will unfold this October when Enola Holmes: The Case of the Missing Marquess arrives in stores.
