Adapted by John Norwood Fago.  Illustrated by E. R. Cruz.

 

A nice comics adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes adventure in hard cover format.

“The Hound of the Baskervilles” is a prequel of sorts.  Doyle had killed off Holmes in “The Adventure of the Final Problem” which caused an uproar from Sherlock fans.  Doyle tried to appease readers with this story.  But eventually he brought the detective back from the dead in “The Adventure of the Empty House.”  (Both the “Final Problem” and “Empty House” were published in a one-shot comic from DC.)
