Sequel comics! First Austens, and now, Holmeses. You remember the first Holmes/Watson comic, don't you?
Here's the thing about a homosexual relationship between Holmes and Watson: you are never going to prove it. It just isn't in the books, explicitly. It would be rad if it was but it's not so now we are going to have arguments with no end because, maybe maybe maybe maybe. They are like James Buchanan and Willian Rufus King, who I always picture going grocery shopping together because they looked like they were the cutest little old couple, but who is to say for sure? Aside from Andrew Jackson, who had lots to say.
Eventually the idea that these two were hookin' up between the pages gets so popular that people who never read the books will argue, "yeah man of course they were!" That's popular culture for you! I think it's interesting. Between you and me, I much prefer (obviously) Gay Watson to Stupid Watson. What Watson does in his spare time is his business, now solve me some damn crimes, boys!
I would like to direct your attention to this important thing! My friend Joey Comeau of A Softer World fame is not just a comics writer, but a regular(?) writer as well. He will like that snazzy intro I wrote just there. Anyway, he just put out a new book, it's called One Bloody Thing After Another. I have read it, and it is so good, you guys. In fact he used to send me bits while he was writing and I ate them up, waiting for more. That's how much I like it. I am telling you this so that you can also enjoy it! Man oh man, you won't be disappointed.
