From time to time you just have to pick a comic that is a little light-hearted. Kid Sherlock is exactly just that type of story aimed for the family, especially kids. The comic is loosely based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. The Sherlock Holmes thing is kind of a big deal now and this is a quality way of introducing the character to a younger audience. Now this Sherlock is set in a more modern elementary school type setting. The setting is hide and seek. Young Sherlock is about to demonstrate the value and quality of his doll/action figure. It’s discovered one of his classmates has lost their toy for show and tell. The book has a novel use for Watson who happens to get framed for the disappearance. It’s all a very nice set up and resolution to the tale. The creators have come up with a solid kids book that has a beginning and ending that will make it fun for kids to read each month. The artwork is nicely done and fills each frame quite well. It comes across like an excellent animated series that could have no age or time frame. Fun for all ages to be sure.
