One of the guiltiest pleasures in comic books right now (Yes, even more so than “Barack the Barbarian”) is Wildstorm’s “Victorian Undead.” As tentative as most were when this one was announced last year I wasn’t sure how this one would go over, but since its first issue in November the mini-series has been a very popular title for the company. Beyond the break you’ll find the preview for the 3rd issue in the ongoing dilemma before Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.
“This sensational miniseries continues as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson find themselves in an increasingly desperate position as Baker Street falls to the undead. What’s the dastardly secret behind this plague on London, and can the help of Sherlock’s genius brother, Mycroft, shed light on the horrors before it’s too late?”
Being that we have been waiting for the undead to break out of the tunnels below London and out into the streets I have to say that this looks like one exciting issue. If you haven’t already jumped on the bandwagon for this title I would definitely recommend starting on January 27th when issue #3 hits shelves. (MSRP $2.99)
