Excellent Writing Marks It As A Great Story
With a few references to Holmes and Dr Watson we move through the story of Moriarty at lightning speed. We get a glimpse of the cost that Moriarty has paid for his life of criminality, but we are also aware that Moriarty is reforming in the wake of his encounter with Holmes. There are demons that he is exorcising but the behavior is consistent with what one would expect from Holmes. Moriarty even uses Jade as Holmes used Watson; as a sounding board for his observations and ideas.
The story is well paced and the writing is very high caliber bringing this series to a much higher level than other comics in the market.
