Kill Shakespeare Writers Anthony Del Col And Conor McCreery Tackle Sherlock Holmes Vs. Harry Houdini

The writers of Kill Shakespeare, Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery are moving on over to Dynamite to work on Sherlock Holmes vs Harry Houdini. They will be joined by artist Carlos Furuzono and cover artists John Cassaday, Aaron Campbell and Colton Worley.

Sherlock Holmes and Harry Houdini are two of the most fascinating characters of the last hundred-plus years.  Placing them together in the same world produces so many moments of mystery, intrigue, illusion, and reveal,” says Del Col, who then quips, “And that’s only during our research, in which Conor and I escaped near-death experiences while donning deerstalker caps.

In Sherlock Holmes vs. Harry Houdini #1, famed detective Sherlock Holmes and brash showman Harry Houdini must combine forces to defeat a mysterious mystic dedicated to destroying Houdini’s career and killing anyone who gets in his way.  But despite their singular purpose, the two titans have too much professional pride between them… and it’s only a matter of time until the deadliest sin has them facing off.

Conor McCreery says,

Working with Dynamite is a blast.  Their editorial team has proven repeatedly that they know how to make legacy characters like Sherlock Holmes come alive.  We couldn’t wait to get the chance to work with and learn from some of the best minds in comicdom.

Sherlock Holmes vs. Harry Houdini #1 will be in the August Previews catalog and slated for release in October.
