Wondercon '15 -IDW Publish Sherlock Holmes/Sigmund Freud Crossover

Because Green Lantern/Star Trek just wasn't enough.

At their Wondercon panel. IDW has announced it is publishing the comic book adaptation of the Star Trek movie director Nicolas Meyer novel The Seven Per Cent Solution, adapted by Scott and David Tipton, and Ron Joseph. I can hear Tony Lee crying from here.

From the mind of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khanwriter/director Nicholas Meyer, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution is a "rediscovered" Sherlock Holmes adventure that recounts the astonishing and previously unknown collaboration of Sherlock Holmes and Sigmund Freud, as recorded by Dr. John H. Watson. In addition to recounting this remarkable collaboration on a case of diabolic conspiracy, it reveals the real identity of Holmes's nemesis Professor Moriarty, a dark secret shared by Sherlock and his brother Mycroft Holmes, and the detective's true whereabouts during the Great Hiatus, when the world believed him to be dead.

"I'm delighted to help translate my novel, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, for a new audience in a new venue and hope the results will justify the effort!" said Meyer.

The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, which was originally published in 1974, made The New York Times Best Seller list for forty consecutive weeks and has been adapted into a motion picture that earned Meyer an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. IDW is pleased to be the first to bring this incredible tale to life in comics!
