So just imagine that Sherlock Holmes is NOT a deductive genius, eats only toast and soup, and...is a sorcerer given to fits of prophetic rambling. Inspector Lestrate likes to lap up the blood at crime scenes...and Dr. John Watson is...a doctor in need of lodging, so for the the price of one sovereign (ever...just one) he moves in with Warlock Holmes. I found myself laughing out loud time and again, yet in the back of my mind, that tiny voice noted that the details of Doyle's originals shone through Denning's masterful re-imagining of the world's greatest detective.— Scott
Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius. Warlock Holmes is an idiot. A font of arcane power, certainly. But he's brilliantly dim. Frankly, he couldn't deduce his way out of a paper bag. The only thing he has really got going for him are the might of a thousand demons and his stalwart companion. Thankfully, Dr. Watson is always there to aid him through the treacherous shoals of Victorian propriety... and save him from a gruesome death every now and again.
