The Baker Street Irregulars is a comic book by Tony Lee and Dan Boultwood, published by Hachette but now out of print.
That hasn't put of its fans however, and the series has now been adapted into a Milwaukee stage play.
In October, the Todd Wehr Theater will be putting on Sherlock Holmes: The Baker Street Irregulars, by Eric Coble, based on the comics and with the approval of the Conan Doyle Estate.
Sherlock Holmes is missing, and the streets of London are awash with crime. Without the famously shrewd detective to save them, who will help the people of London? The Baker Street Irregulars – a gang of street kids hired by Sherlock himself to help solve cases – accept the challenge of defending the Victorian city against the forces of evil, including the criminal mastermind believed to be the notorious Moriarty. Based on the graphic novels byNew York Times best-selling author Tony Lee, drawn by critically acclaimed artist Dan Boultwood, this family-friendly adventure will unveil clues as to the true fate of Sherlock Holmes. The game is afoot!
Based on the graphic novels The Baker Street Irregulars: The Adventure of the Missing Detective, The Adventure of the Phantom of Drury Lane, The Adventure of the Charge of the Old Brigade and The Adventure of the Family Reunion, shame there won't be any copies to sell in the foyer.
Maybe it's a good opportunity for another publisher to pick up the rights?
