Fan Expo Canada 2012 starts at 4pm today, so I’m off with the fine folks who buy comics and keep my sorry butt employed! But before I leave for the day, I have to make sure you get to see the last of the Frankly Fabulous work our team of creators produced for Holmes Incorporated #3!
Today’s we start with Dylan Kloepfer scripting a story for Adira Rotstein to illustrate. Adira scripted the touching “Hologram Holmes”, seen a few days back in these previews, and Dylan illustrated the action packed “Heroic Deeds” seen yesterday. You mean these people are all writing AND drawing stories? How do they contain all that talent? They didn’t, they got it out and put it on the page! Together they came up with Finally Peace and Quiet.

Murder on the Moon is by a couple of OG creators who have been with us since Holmes Inc. was a gleam in everyone’s eye. Writer Mike Marano, and artist Christopher Yao, team up to show everyone how it’s done. Please, Marvel or DC, don’t steal these guys away from us too soon.

Last but so not least, is the work of assistant editor Kathleen Gallagher scripting a story of Trey and Artie dealing with some nefarious business in the Far East. Kathleen has been with the Fit To Print program since BEFORE it was Holmes Incorporated, and we couldn’t be happier to see her return for her FOURTH time! She never disappoints with her lively action-packed scripts. Marshall Geddes picked up the art duties for his second turn at the Holmes Incorporated bat, STILL our youngest contributor at 19 years of age, and WAY too skilled for someone that young. Together, they produced Recipe for Chaos.

Yeah, that’s how CANADIANS spell “rain check”, and Artie Holmes is Canadian. So There.

The great Blue Water Comics, refining Holmes down to what the fans really want.
No, sorry, I forgot it was the 2010s and everything is vampire nowadays. DC finally makes the Sherlock Holmes that Twilight fans really want.
We all know Holmes is best when he’s a teenage girl with a pair of Katana swords. That’s why Holmes Inc. wins!
