    For a graphic novel I enjoyed this. I liked the artwork and the story was decently told. It's intended for a younger audience and I think with that in mind, it's well done. I'm a great Sherlock Holmes fan and will read anything connected with him! For a graphic novel I enjoyed this. I liked the artwork and the story was decently told.

    Martin Powell has adapted the story brilliantly. The artwork is perfect for the tale, somber and dark. Holmes and Watson are brought alive in the graphics. Any Sherlockian will be thrilled to how close the tale is to the original by AC Doyle. As a fan of Holmes, I hope the author and Dark Horse have great success with this tale, and the published continues to bring Holmes to life in the genre.

I most like the fact that new younger readers can discover Sherlock Holmes in a format that they already read, and perhaps can be introduced to the real Canon. Bravo for the quality of work. I had one disconnect in reading the work. As Holmes readers know, Watson sends reports. The graphic novel using script on the pages to show the notes being sent. I found that hard to read on the PDF gallery I had in Adobe Digital editions. The original was published in 2008. The redone version publication date is Mar 5 2013

With Sir Charles Baskerville murdered, and Henry Baskerville in line to take up the family fortune and estate, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must figure out the murdered before Sir Henry Baskerville becomes a victim too. The graphic novel was quite simple. The graphics were colorful and well detailed, but the plot was simple enough and the pictures managed to help push the story further. I quite enjoyed the book, it was an easy read and there was no trouble in understanding anything at all. The novel could have probably been better with further character development. I felt like some of the characters in the novel, the reader is already supposed to know what they're like. But overall, the graphic novel was an enjoyable read and a simple and easy one at that.

    A very well done comic book. Martin Powell did a great job to bring this story to life in comic book form. It has some really great eery illustrations that help to capture the gloomy feel of the original story. For a comic book fan or Holmes fan you won't be disappointed. A very well done comic book.

    A good adaptation with art nicely suited to the moody atmosphere.

    A reasonably good graphic interpretation of the story. As always, I found the idea of a large painted dog, trained to kill one specific man (sir Henry Baskerville, the heir to the Baskerville fortune) to be quite far-fetched. At the time of its writing, though, it was probably believable, given the mysterious nature of the Moors.

    The Hound of the Baskervilles is my favourite Holmes mystery. This adaptation of the original classic was okay. The story was a little underwhelming compared to the action and suspense of the original but it showed all of the plot points and the illustrations were good.

    Las ilustraciones son muy buenas, la adaptación es también muy buena es un libro que lo podés leer en una noche es corto (pero te engancha) y muy fácil de entender, yo lo recomendaría como lectura para salir de un bloqueó, igual si no estás en uno también, muy recomendado, me gustó mucho.

    The Hound of the Baskervilles (Graphic Revolve: Common Core Editions) is a fair adaptation but is all it is. It changes a key point of the story [involving the identity of the villain's "sister" no less]. Adequate for an introduction perhaps.

    This was an on-the-edge-of-your-seat mystery that I thoroughly enjoyed. I wondered if there really was a gigantic feral dog that was killing the Baskervilles, it was so authentic.

    I do like mystery but this book just wasn't the best. It was jumping all over the place and I got lost. I would not recommend this book to a friend.

    I was honestly surprised by how short this was. It grasped every part of the story, but it flew by unlike the real book. I wish there was more meat to it.

Readers are expected to either already be familiar with their backstory or be content with the plot alone. This is odd given that the appeal of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries is the two main characters' personalities and their remarkable relationship. The artwork is similarly simple and predictable. Combined with the trite, supernatural appearance of the hound which is eventually explained realistically, the entire graphic novel brings to mind an episode of the cartoon classic Scooby-Doo. And this is not a compliment, for Powell and illustrator Perez fail to live up to Conan Doyle's storytelling legend.

    A very faithful abridgment of the famous story. The graphics are quite nice, given the sense of motion, and action to compound the sense of urgency in the story. I believe it would be a great young person's introduction to the story, rather than any film because it covers the salient points to gain a true sense of the story. There are some changes to the dialogue that ever so slightly changes the meaning for me, but hardly a negative point because the points left out are of a more mature nature A very faithful abridgment of the famous story. The graphics are quite nice, given the sense of motion, and action to compound the sense of urgency in the story. I believe it would be a great young person's introduction to the story, rather than any film because it covers the salient points to gain a true sense of the story. There are some changes to the dialogue that ever so slightly changes the meaning for me, but hardly a negative point because the points left out are of a more mature nature that a younger reader needn't worry about to understand the most important points of the plot, and its twists. For example, with Laura Lyons, there is no mention of an affair between she and Sir Baskerville, or Mr. Stapleton. The back of the book offers a glossary of words for the young reader, and Common Core aligned reading questions, and writing questions. The last pages are full-color examples of other graphic novels in the series.

    I adore Sherlock so I was really excited to read one of the stories in graphic novel form. I was also really excited that I finished this copy in less than an hour, which of course made me want to read more graphic novels. Unfortunately, I found that this edition didn't give nearly enough importance, elegance or class to Sherlock or John, making them look a bit pompous and caricature-ish. All of the illustrations were over the top and didn't have that mysterious, smart atmosphere that is part of I adore Sherlock so I was really excited to read one of the stories in graphic novel form.

All of the illustrations were over the top and didn't have that mysterious, smart atmosphere that is part of the charm of Sherlock and Watson. I also found that the language was very simple, with no real charm to it, that makes it feel nothing like the original story written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There were also quite a few inconsistances between the writing and the illustrations.

But I wasn't familiar with the original text and so pieces felt rushed or missing that I think could've simply been fixed by making the trade longer.

    I saw a comical play adaptation of this with my grandparents, and when I found a used edition in a bookstore several weeks later, i decided to read it... SO glad that I did. I'd of course heard of Sherlock Holmes books long before I actually read them, but i found myself liking them a lot more than I thought I would. Not a lot to say about it, but certainly one of the best mystery novels I've ever read, multi-dimesional enough to be consistently engaging, but not confusing.

    Read the "real" version of this one long ago, so I used this a test for the graphic novel classics. I have to say, nicely done. Good artwork, well laid out, made for an easy to follow story. Would be a good way to introduce young readers to classics that they would otherwise not read. Read the "real" version of this one long ago, so I used this a test for the graphic novel classics.

    Having never read the original, i found this to be a good introduction into the Sherlock books. I wasn't as impressed with the graphics compared to other graphic novels, but it didn't hurt the story any for me. The darker/mysterious aspect of Doyle lends itself to the darker graphics.

    I chose this because it is a graphic novel in Spanish. My reading level is above picture books, but barely into chapter books. Therefore, this was awesome! I really enjoyed reading it.
