“A real treat to both fans of the great detective and readers who appreciate a well-produced graphic novel” – The Bookseller

“How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”

When Miss Mary Morstan calls on 221B Baker Street, the “utterly inexplicable” story she tells stirs the heart of Dr. John Watson – and rouses his friend Sherlock Holmes from his self-induced lethargy. For who else but London’s only unofficial consulting detective could possibly solve the mystery of the disappearing Army officer, the one-legged man, his barefoot accomplice, the missing treasure-chest, and… the “sign of the four”?


“Culbard captures Holmes’ sombre side wonderfully alongside Watson’s honest and bashful nature. Disguises, hidden treasure, double-crossing and the consequences of regret all feature in a great crime story that also delightfully explains Holmes’ powers of observation and deduction.” –

“The Sign Of The Four was every bit as good as the first two. After all, at this stage, Edginton and Culbard are hardly likely to either change a winning formula or start taking vast liberties with Conan Doyle’s original. Instead they’ve produced another excellent adaptation.”

Paul Gravett

•Comics journalist and curator

“I was soon won over … Edginton and Culbard are crafting a distinctive portrayal all their own.”

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“Adaptations of Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes adventures have been mounted in virtually every medium short of nude interpretive dance and have varied widely in quality, but this version of the second Holmes novel is outstanding. … This volume features all of the hallmarks of the original prose. and the visual translation is rich with Victorian period atmosphere … A real treat in every way.”
