About

         While Sherlock Holmes may be a hero known all over the world to countless generations we can promise you that no one has ever seen him like this. 

 

     Upon the death of his partner and being unable to solve her murder Sherlock had a full blown mental breakdown. Believing that he was nothing but a worthless burden on others he withdrew from his day to day life and soon after abandoned it entirely. Thinking that the few loved ones he had left would be better off without him in their lives Sherlock took to living on the streets but broken or not Sherlock was still a hero and despite hesitation, he began helping those around him once again.

 

 

      Within the pages of this action packed mystery thriller Sherlock and Detective John Wats, the son of his former partner, will be solving some of the most complex and heinous crimes New York City has ever seen.

Detective John Wats

   This series will deal with many aspects of Sherlock’s character and abilities as a detective. We will really explore the depths his mental illnesses, how they drive him to help others and even at times help him make connections no one else could make. 

    Our team has two goals overall, first and foremost we want to entertain all of our reads!  Secondly and on a more serious note we want to help destroy the stigma surrounding metal illnesses by showing the real effects that depression and PTSD have one a person and that these sicknesses arent just something’s someone can justness “snap out of”. We want everyone to know that a person dealing with crippling depression isn’t just “sad” or “crazy”, we want all our readers to know that these are real problems people from all walks of life face every day. Hopefully this series will help spread understanding and show those affected by these disorders it’s possible to to get better! 

       Our first issue is already out on comiXology thrilling readers all around  the world!  With your help we can get this series rolling!  All money goes into the making of issue 2 to help our magnificent art team! 

Risks and challenges

While we all fully believe that this series has the potential to go the distance there is unfortunately no guarantee that the book will do well enough to fund a third issue. That being said the backers of our top reward, who will all have appearances in issue 2, are put at risk of becoming a series regular in a series that doesn’t have a very long run.

No one can promise the success of this series but as a team we can promise to put out the best story we can and to market it to as many people as possible through the worlds largest online comic book store, ComiXology.

    Welcome to the team!

    Giving at this level shows that you’ve got a lot of faith in us and this story. So to thank you and show our appreciation you’re going to a recurring character! You’ll have the option of being drawn into one of four positions in the book that will not just appear in issue 2 but will constantly pop up in many issues to follow! Fans will come to know you very well and each character will eventually get their own side story! The role options are:
    * Captain of the precinct Sherlock works out of regularly. You’ll constantly be butting heads with our detective but will know deep down that his methods work no matter how eccentric they may be.
    * An expert crime scene technician who is Sherlock’s go to examiner whenever he needs something analyzed and who is one of the only people Sherlock respects.
    * The best medical examiner around. You are the only person Sherlock will allow perform autopsies. If another doctor, NYC chief medical examiner included, is brought onto a case he is working Sherlock will ignore all of their findings until this character confirms it.
    * Sherlock’s informant. You’re a criminal with a heart of gold. You’ll steal, but only from the corrupt and you’ll give it all away to those in need. You’ve got a proverbial finger in every pot. You have a good relationship with Sherlock, he turns a blind eye to your thievery and you keep and ear to the ground for him and help when you can.
    *Sherlock’s psychiatrist. While Sherlock is often an arrogant person he is not so prideful to not realize he may need help from time to time. If you decide to be this character you will be Sherlock’s proverbial “sin eater” he’s going to be telling you his deepest darkest secrets and in turn you’ll be giving him sage advice that lets him keep doing what he does best, solving crimes and saving lives.

    Limit one per person (we don’t want five identical people walking around with the same name and face) and of course these backers will receive digital copies of both issues one and two.
