Sam Quixote
A wealthy American businessman is murdered in his English manor house, his head blown off by a double-barrelled shotgun - whodunit and why?

The Valley of Fear is one of the better Sherlock Holmes stories but it’s still a fairly mediocre read. It’s a fine story of revenge and intrigue full of American gangsters and Freemasons (like A Study in Scarlet, Arthur Conan Doyle clearly viewed the United States as a romantically dangerous country full of rogues!), and the mystery is well put-together.

Bu çizgi romanların kapaklarına gerçekten bayılıyorum eskimiş kitap havası vermeleri sizce de çok güzel ve orjinal değil mi? Kitabın çizimleri de çok güzel ve kurgu atlanmadan düzgün bir şekilde adapte edilmiş Bir puan kırmamın nedeni bu serinin ilk kitabında hiç kurgudan kopmamıştım fakat burada öyle bir sorun yaşadım. Ama bence yinede çok güzeldi 4/5 ...more

Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes story The Valley of Fear is translated into a graphic novel excellently by Ian Edginton and the artwork of INJ Culbard. Culbard's style is stark, graphic and dark, echoing the ligne claire style of strong lines and clear colours Herge used for Tintin. The Valley of Fear is a twisting tale of secrets and terror, claustrophobically contained within the moat bound country house of Birlstone Manor and the mysterious murder of the rich country gentleman John Douglas, a ...more

Sherlock investigates the murder of an English gentleman in an old castle home.

This story did not grasp my interest and I had to restart it several times. In the end, I had to skim to finish it.

I think I prefer sherlock in his original format...

En sevdiğim Sherlock Holmes kitabı
Alicia Sandoval Poveda
Aunque no sea la novela más popular de sir ACD, esta novela me gusta mucho y tenía curiosidad por la novela gráfica. Me gustó mucho como presenta a Sherlock y Watson, pero me hubiera gustado más desarrollo de la segunda parte de la novela.

En la novela esta parte es independiente y cargada de violencia, intriga y suspenso. En eso me parece que esta novela gráfica sé queda corta.

Cabe mencionar que la introducción y el epílogo que incluye son muy ricos para en pocas palabras presentar datos

This Sherlock Holmes graphic novel grabbed my attention while I was helping the hubby find graphic novels at the library. Since I love Holmes and mysteries and needed another library book to help me wrap up the I Love Library Books Challenge, it seemed like it really needed to come home with me. Graphic novels aren't my favorite medium for reading, but I have to say that they do help one quickly add another notch to the reading belt.

The Valley of Fear is loosely based on real events in late

La vallée de la peur, publié en 1915, est le quatrième et dernier roman de la série Sherlock Holmes. L’adaptation qu’en fait Edginton est excellente et demeure très proche du texte original. J’ai déjà mentionné le travail de Culbard (pour ses adaptations de H.P. Lovecraft). Son style sobre (à la fois très British mais influencé par la BD Franco-Belge) et son utilisation d’une palette de couleurs glauque se prête bien à l’atmosphère victorienne des aventures de Holmes. Cette bande dessinée est ...more

Fazer uma apreciação a este texto é uma armadilha de que fujo. Trata-se de Conan Doyle, clássico e firmemente dentro do domínio do policial. Edginton faz uma adaptação capaz do conto, mantendo a tensão e o conflito entre as pistas que a narrativa nos dá e a imprevisibilidade das deduções de Holmes cuja lógica só se torna aparente após reveladas. INJ Culbard empresta o seu traço simples e elegante com uma paleta de cores obscura e suave. Houve um pormenor que me surpreendeu. A constância dos ...more

Tämä tarina ei koskaan ole ollut suosikkini - amerikkalainen kovaksikeitetty ei jotenkin sovi Holmesiin ja salaseurat nautin mieluummin ei-niin-moottoripyöräjengimäisinä. Karkea piirrostyyli ei parantanut sulattamista.

Edginton sees part of the key to his success coming from good relationships with artists, especially D'Israeli and Steve Yeowell as well as Steve Pugh and Mike Collins. He is best known for his steampunk/alternative history work (often with the artist D'Israeli) and is the co-creator of Scarlet Traces, a sequel to their adaptation of H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds. With 2000 AD we has written ...more
