Petr Kopl is the award winning Czech artist whose Sherlock Holmes graphic novel 'A Scandal In Bohemia' won the Comic Book of the Year award in 2013. This project is to translate and release his second graphic novel - 'The Hound of The Baskervilles' in English.

Jay Ganguly from the Sherlock Holmes Society of India sums it up perfectly;

"Quirky, clever, and a genius to rival Sherlock himself, Petr is an outstanding artist who makes every page, every panel, a veritable feast for the Sherlockian soul. The Hound of Baskervilles comes to life as never before, fearsome, terrifying and yet glorious. Prepare to be surprised; Petr is a master of intricacies and devious twists that will leave you begging for more. I need only one word to describe this book: PHENOMENAL!"

Here is an early sample panel:

There are some wonderful rewards. The top reward is to have a character drawn in your image in a future Petr book. This book contains a character designed for Markus- one of the backers of the Scandal In Bohemia project - look out for his character. We've also doubled the number of signed copies as they sold out very fast last time. 

MX Publishing has over 150 Sherlock Holmes books and a special page on Facebook for Sherlock Holmes Comic Books.

Risks and challenges

To ensure we have time to post the reward coies we've limited them to 100 copies this time. Translation is alwasy tough to get done but we have an experienced team doing it and we are very confident it can be done.
