Sherlock’s Sister Enola Holmes Takes On The Case Of The Missing Marquess From IDW’s EuroComics

by Hannah Means Shannon

IDW Publishing’s EuroComics imprint has announced plans to publish a new graphic novel series featuring the adventures of Enola Holmes, who’s presented as the younger sister of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. The graphic novels are adapted from the stories by Nancy Springer by writer and artist Serena Blasco.

The first book that EuroComics will publish in the series, The Case of the Missing Marquess, will be released in October 2018.

In this first volume:

Enola, who’s been raised by her mother in the family’s country manor, wakes on her fourteenth birthday to discover that her mother has disappeared, leaving only a collection of flowers and a coded message book. With Sherlock and Mycroft determined to ship their sister off to a boarding school to make a “real lady” out of her, the independent-minded Enola escapes, displaying a cleverness that impresses even the brilliant Sherlock. Her journey quickly leads her into the dark and sordid neighborhoods of London and she finds herself involved in the kidnapping of a young marquess. Will Enola evade her two brothers and succeed in her new life, even as she continues to follow her mother’s trail? This delightfully drawn graphic novel adaptation also includes a portfolio of pages from Enola’s secret notebook.
