Mycroft Holmes: Sherlock's older, and smarter, brother. He is a spoiled, privileged, obnoxious and brilliant college student who prefers to challenge, mock and spar with his professors, drink and party to excess and have sex with married women-preferably his professors' wives.
After a one-on-one
with his Philosophy professor, Mycroft proceeds to seduce the professor's
wife. After several bouts of
love-making Mycroft's younger brother: Sherlock, arrives soaking wet.
Having arranged for
Sherlock to witness his first naked woman, suddenly masked men smash trough the
door and subdue Mycroft with an electrified glove and leave.
Sherlock is not
impressed-he credits it to another of Mycroft's carefully crafted and
Mycroft awakens to
find himself hanging upside down and bound head to toe. A masked man assaults him with his fists and
then sends in hungry hounds.
But, are things as
they seem? Who are the men who abducted
him? What do they want to know? What
have their actions have to do with a mysterious mechanical device that exploded
in a nearby museum killing many?
Titan Comics and Kareem Abdul Jabbar (yes,
that Kareem!), Raymond Obstfeld, Joshua Cassara, Luis Guerrero and Simon
Bowland present a Victorian adventure like no other as Mycroft and Sherlock
reluctantly team up to discover the secrets behind the Apocalypse Handbook.
It's the Age of Steam like its never been seen
before! Great story, awesome art and
spectacular colors make a combination that will please any Holmes fan.
