Legendary Comics YA Announces New Graphic Novel ‘Enola Holmes: Mycroft’s Dangerous Game’ Is Afoot and Debuts Cover
Featuring Millie Bobby Brown as the Titular Teen Detective in an Original Story from Author Nancy Springer
The beloved teenage super-sleuth is coming to comic form on August 23, 2022, in Legendary Comics YA’s upcoming graphic novel ENOLA HOLMES: MYCROFT’S DANGEROUS GAME, from author Nancy Springer, written by Mickey George with artwork by Giorgia Sposito. Starring Millie Bobby Brown (Godzilla vs. Kong, “Stranger Things”) as the young and brilliant Enola, the graphic novel will feature an original story that bridges the adventures of the first film with the highly anticipated sequel forthcoming on Netflix.
Picking up where last year’s exceptionally popular film left off, readers and fans will join Enola, the rebellious teen sister of Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill), in a thrilling adventure and uncover the new mystery that she is up against. After a mysterious group of anarchists abduct her brother Mycroft (Sam Claflin), Enola investigates his disappearance in hopes of rescuing him and recovering something precious he took from her. With the help of Lord Tewkesbury and a young boy on the streets named Shag, she uncovers the truth behind her brother's abduction and unravels a web of mystery that takes her deep into the London underground as she tries to foil the anarchists’ nefarious plot!
“We are so excited to expand Enola’s world and story with an exciting new adventure in our graphic novel from this extremely talented creative team,” said Nikita Kannekanti, Legendary Comics’ Senior Editor. “Nancy has come up with a really fun story with some charming new characters and some returning familiar faces. I hope fans will enjoy solving the mystery with Enola!”
Springer continued, “it was a great pleasure to develop this new Enola Holmes adventure with such a talented team, and it is an even greater pleasure to be personally included as a cameo in the graphic novel! Can you find me?”
Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated book series, The Enola Holmes Mysteries, is comprised of six novels that put a dynamic female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family, and features the rousing adventures of Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her famous siblings. The first film became one of the most-watched original Netflix films of all time with an estimated 77 million households choosing the film over its first four weeks of release. The sequel is currently filming.
