THE BAKER STREET PECULIARS #1-4 (Roger Langridge / Hirsch)

L’excellent Roger Langridge (Abigail and the Snowman, The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow) revient chez Boom! Studios avec un nouveau projet sous le bras, la mini-série The Baker Street Peculiars sur laquelle il collabore avec le dessinateur Andy Hirsch.

Cette histoire en six chapitres suit les Irréguliers de Baker Street - Molly la brute; Rajani la voleuse ; Humphrey le richard et son chien Wellington - dans leurs enquêtes surnaturelles que refuse catégoriquement Sherlock Holmes.
Pour leur première affaire, les trois jeunes gens s’attaquent à l’étrange cas du Golem ouvrier et découvre… ce que fabrique Ms. Hudson avec le chapeau de son célèbre locataire ?!?

La réponse, en mars.

What’s to Love: Roger Langridge (Abigail and the Snowman, The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow), who has delighted us with his imaginative all-ages work for years, is teaming up with Andy Hirsch (Adventure Time) to bring us a new twist within the world of Sherlock Holmes. What if the world’s greatest detective wasn’t quite what he—or she—seemed?

What It Is: It’s a lovely day in 1930s London, right up until a giant stone lion comes to life and starts wrecking the city! It seems like the perfect case for the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes. Of course, Holmes doesn’t actually exist; he is a fictional character created by housekeeper Mrs. Hudson, who has been the real detective all along, writing Holmes’ adventures under the pen name of John Watson and running around the city in disguise. With an overwhelmed caseload she’ll need the help of a precocious bunch of young detectives-in-training to solve the mystery of the living statues.[/quote]

Final issue! The Peculiars will have to work together and be as clever as they’ve ever been if they’re to stop Chippy Kipper and his army of golems once and for all.

On m’a récemment offert le TPB (signé par Langridge, en plus), et j’ai trouvé ça à la fois rafraîchissant et enlevé. C’est rythmé, c’est drôle, l’intrigue est plutôt sympathique, la relecture holmesienne est marrante comme tout, bref, c’est une petite friandise avec beaucoup de goût.
