Storck wraps it all up, which is a little sad–a sequel does not seem to be in the offing.
He does tie it all together nicely here, though I’m not familiar enough with “The Musgrave Ritual” to know how close he sticks to it and the conclusion, from “The Final Problem,” is expectedly loose. Mebberson does a lovely job with this part of the story, with a great rendering of Reichenbach Falls.
This issue also wraps up the Kermit and Piggy arc, which seems to be in all the Boom! Muppet books, whether it’s primary or not. Storck’s been making Kermit’s LeStrade, especially this issue, a lot smarter than Gonzo’s Holmes, even though Gonzo manages to solve the cases.
For the most part, these themed Muppet titles have been outstanding and I probably have a new favorite with Sherlock Holmes.
Mebberson and Storck should be doing an ongoing series.
