“When you think there is nothing more to be said or done with Sherlock Holmes, along come Meadows and Bennett to breathe fresh life into the great detective. Bravo! I’m thoroughly enjoying this original tale!” – Michael Moorcock, fantasy legend (Elric)

“As a lifelong Sherlock Holmes devotee I’m very happy to add this to my collection of the master of 221 B Baker street’s adventures! Meadows and Bennett have accomplished a small(but important!) miracle in capturing the spirit and mystery of Conan Doyle’s Holmes in their great imagining in this new story. Meadows has written a tale full of mystery and he draws you in with his mastery of the detective tale. Bennett’s art is just wonderful as it has all the atmosphere a Holmes tale would require and yet has a fresh approach and graphic charm that makes this an instant classic.” – Kelley Jones, artist (Batman, Dracula)

“Holmes. Watson. Dark conspiracies. And, of course, mysteries to be solved. Sherlock Holmes and The Empire Builders promises to be an intriguing twist on the classic Doyle stories, in the hands of two enthusiastic and capable creators.”—J.M. DeMatteis, writer (Justice League, Moonshadow)
