Petr Kopl is a multi-award winning Czech artist who has created four stunning graphic novels of Sherlock Holmes. In addition to Scandal In Bohemia being voted the Czech Republic comic book of the year 2013, Petr also picked up the award for comic book writer of the year from Fabula Rasa.

This project takes the original Czech version and will vitally create an English version so that Petr's amazin artwork can be enjoyed by Sherlock Holmes fans across the world. Petr combines several stories into one graphic novel of around 160 pages.

 This book includes A Scandal In Bohemia and The Speckled Band intertwined.

Petr's images are bold and striking, but the characters are true to the original stories - all in very vibrant colour. 

Risks and challenges

The main challenge is the translation - finding the right translators that can capture Petr's style.
