John Watson doesn’t feel like he really fits in as the new student at Baker Elementary. If it wasn’t bad enough being the only dog, it seems he has already gained the attention of the class bully, Kyle. Out in the play yard, Watson feels even more alone until he meets a young boy named Sherlock Holmes. While quite clever, Sherlock is often so lost in his own thoughts that he is oblivious to the people around him. However, when Watson shows an interest in Sherlock’s work it sparks the beginning of an adventure Sherlock never expected: friendship. Their first mission, identify the bad smell that has been afflicting their classroom.

What people are saying about Kid Sherlock:

Kid Sherlock is everything you love about classic Holmes stories but with a whole new tone and attitude.
A great way to get kids into comics and mysteries at the same time!”
– Andy Schmidt from Comics Experience

“KID SHERLOCK hits the magical demographic of being fun for me and my son.
When one of the lead characters is a crime solving dog in a newsboy cap, you can’t go wrong!”
– Matt Kolowsky from ComiXology

“I think I identify more with KID SHERLOCK than his literary predecessor because I’ve actually faced some of these mysteries. And the art’s as inviting as the best school bulletin board. A nice blend of detective work and burgeoning friendship, Kid Sherlock is a great read for those in the midst of elementary school enigmas
(or those still searching for clues).”
– Paolo Rivera, Artist of Daredevil
