Exciting news from our friends at Viz Media!: “Sherlock Holmes’ famed antagonist William James Moriarty is getting a spin-off manga in the form of Moriarty the Patriot on October 6th. Unlike the nemesis we know in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic tale, Moriarty is somewhat of a hero trying to balance London’s unfair class system.”
“In the late 19th century, Great Britain rules over a quarter of the world in Moriarty the Patriot. Nobles sit in their fancy homes in comfort and luxury, while the working class slaves away at their jobs. When young Albert James Moriarty’s upper-class family adopts two lower-class orphans, the cruelty the boys experience at his family’s hands cements Albert’s hatred of the nobility he was born into. He asks the older of the two boys – who has a genius mind and a killer instinct – to help him rid the world of evil, starting with Albert’s own family!” Expect a manga review from us soon to find out more about this thrilling manga!
