In Which I Outsmart Mr. Sherlock Holmes
AS regular readers will know, I have had something of a long-running feud with that sickeningly smug sleuth, Mr. Sherlock Holmes. Even writing that cove’s name is enough to make me want to vomit all over my hands.
Well, happily today I can say that I have well and truly got one over on him, by sneaking my noble self into a story all about him! HA!
The tale in question is entitled ‘The Facebook of Sherlock Holmes,’ and is the work of my no-good scribe, Mr. A.D Fanton, esquire. This comic-strip adventure for Mr. Holmes appears in the latest issue of the adult comic (surely an oxymoron), ‘Viz’, which goes on sale in shops to-day.
Unbeknownst to Mr. Holmes, however, I could not let him have all the glory in this latest escapade, so ensured (through a mixture of violent lashes and verbal abuse directed at Mr. Fanton) that I too would appear in the story. And behold, all my efforts were not in vain, for there I am, in all my glory:
Ha-HA! I’d wager that the so-called ‘Great Detective’ did not see that one coming! Victory is mine!
The above adventure appears in Viz Comic, number 241, which you may purchase from the shops for £3.20, and then you may wave it in the dopey detective’s startled, big-conked face.
‘Twas all rather elementary, in the end…
