Daredevil and Sherlock Holmes



I am glad that Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch have become part of the Marvel cinematic universe, but my favorite roles to see both of these talented actors in are Holmes and Watson.  So, I am very happy that we will finally be getting some new installments of Sherlock on the BBC in the new year.  I will watch anything Sherlock Holmes related, and I consider their show to be among the best (right after the just about perfect Jeremy Brett series).   Elementary has been tiding me over, but it just isn't the same

Have you ever read the story in 'Detective Comics' where Holmes helped Batman to conclude a case?

Yeah, great one!

I personally prefer "Elementary" to "Sherlock," although I do enjoy both programs.

Would this be a glorified guest-appearance like Spidey "meets" Dracula or DD "meets" the Two-Gun Kid? Or would Sherlock Holmes be "accidentally" transported to the 21st century by Dr. Strange as part of some conflict against the Hand?

To tide you over for Sherlock, let the Hindi sisters entertain you.

I agree that the Jeremy Brett series was pretty much the pinnacle of Sherlock Holmes on film (or video or whatever). I rather wish that he'd lived long enough for the production to record The Yellow Face, my favorite Holmes short story.

As to today's cover, Ross, it's very nicely done. I rather like Cary's story idea, too; maybe you can do a "direct continuation" along those lines some time.

How about SHERLOCK HOLMES meets SHERLOCK HEMLOCK?

@Bob Greenwade: you mean, the Patel twins from the Potter-verse?

Anon -- The Hindi sisters are Hilly and Hannah Hindi, of the Hillywood Show (as you'd know if you'd clicked on the link).

I did. They looked too much like Trans-Jenner...with British accents.
