“The Hound of the Baskervilles Part I”
Writer: Doug Moench
Artist: Val Mayerick

A Doctor Mortimer comes to ask for the famous detective’s help. He tells the story of Hugo Baskerville who in 1742 was an evil man. He kidnaps a young woman who later escapes. He goes out to track her down. When he doesn’t return his friends ride out to find him. They discover that he was killed by a hound from hell. Now an ancestor to the Baskervilles has been found murdered. Mortimer an old friend claims that he found the tracks of a dog by the dead body. The heir a young man from Canada arrives to claim his inheritance and gets a cryptic message to avoid the moor.

This is the first part of an adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective. Its probably his most famous work. They did a real good job of adapting the story even thought the first part is mostly exposition. I enjoyed the story and I might like to actually read the book sometime. It sounds very interesting.
