Have you found yourself lately, sitting about in your smoking jacket and ascot thinking "by jove, I wish there was more of a plethora of zombies in my sequentially drawn art stories"? Probably not. But just in case you have, you're in luck with Wildstorm comics newest series, "Victorian Undead"!

Retro Poster: "The Hound of The Baskervilles" (1939)

History's most famous detective made a major comeback this weekend with "Sherlock Holmes", and an opening weekend box office take to the tune of $65 million. Robert Downey Jr. is the current inhabitant of the role, but it was 1939's "The Hounds of Baskervilles" that catapulted the anti-hero that we know today into pop culture lore. In this case Holmes was played by Basil Rathbone, who over the course of his career would play the sleuth 13 times. In "Baskervilles", Holmes uncovers a plot to have a Nobleman killed by a "terrible trained hound".

Not Your Mother's "Sherlock Holmes" (Trailer)

Not being of the literary sort, my response to anything involving "Sherlock Holmes" usually begins with a yawn and ends with a nap. For that reason, I was totally disinterested in the upcoming film adaptation of the popular series. That is, of course, until I found out that it starred the man-crush power couple of Robert Downey Jr. (Holmes) and Jude Law (Watson). After that, I caught up on an apparently old story about Robert Maillet accidentally punching RDJ in the face during a fight scene.
