Sherlock To Get Third Manga Adaptation In Four Years

4ONjAijIf you think the pace of the BBC recent adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman is laborious, with three episodes every 18 months or so, then feel for fans of the manga adaptations. They only get one episode a year, or less

The first by Jay came in 2012, an adaptation of A Study In Pink using the TV show as a base, the second last year again from the first TV series, The Blind Banker and now with the December issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine beginning the third episode The Great Game, featuring Moriarty.

At the current rate they'll catch up with the BBC in… 2021?
