Now, this is exciting. Neil Gaiman already has a number of his prose concoctions adapted by Dark Horse Comics – including the breathtaking ONLY THE END OF THE WORLD and the award-winning AMERICAN GODS series – but the publisher today announces that they will be adding to that portfolio with a book adapted from a story to die for – and the even better news is, Neil’s writing this one himself…
Rafael Albuquerque, Rafael Scavone, and Dave Stewart to Adapt A STUDY IN EMERALD
“Dark Horse is thrilled to reveal the next installment in the Gaiman Library with A STUDY IN EMERALD! From multiple award-winning writer Neil Gaiman comes this graphic novel adaptation featuring art by Eisner award winning artist Rafael Albuquerque (EI8HT, AMERICAN VAMPIRE)!
A STUDY IN EMERALD is a supernatural mystery set in the world of Sherlock Holmes and H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. The heart-pounding tale features the brilliant detective and his faithful partner as they attempt to solve a horrific murder of cosmic proportions. The complex investigation takes the Baker Street investigators from the slums of Whitechapel all the way to the Queen’s Palace.
Rafael Scavone, co-founder of publisher Stout Club with Albuquerque and writer of WONDER WOMAN 75th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL #1, lends his compositional talent to Gaiman’s award-winning short story while Dave Stewart (BLACK HAMMER, HELLBOY) brings his gorgeous colorist skills to the faithful adaptation. The beautiful cover is also by Albuquerque.”
A STUDY IN EMERALD will be available for purchase on June 20, 2018. The 80-page hardcover retails for $17.99. Visit DarkHorse.com for more information on the Neil Gaiman Library.
