Reviews A Study in Emerald
- Recently while listening to a podcast, I discovered that Neil Gaiman had written a re-telling, or pastiche, of one of the Sherlock Holmes’ stories, “A Study in Scarlet.” It can be found online for free here, and this version is actually printed like an actual newspaper with ads and all.

- 4.5 stars.An excellent adaptation of the seminal Neil Gaiman story that fuses Sherlock Holmes and the Cthulhu Mythos.

The adaptation wasn't overpowered by endless caption boxes like some of the other Gaiman adaptations, and Rafael Albuquerque's art provided the perfect unsettling mood for the story.
