17. Lavin, Michael R. "Comics publishers in decline: A tale of two companies." Serials Review 24, no. 3/4 (1998): 94.

Examines the publishing problems of Acclaim Comics and Awesome Entertainment. Problems resulting to the curtailment of publishing activities; Company history; Position in the comic book publishing industry; Review of selection of the publisher's best-known titles. Includes a reference to Doyle. "...Moore uses this plot device not only to introduce the Extreme characters, but also to usher in a delightful series of homages to various comic book genres of the past, from westerns to war comics. He also manages to interweave another of his own interests, pulp fiction and classic adventure heroes, with nods to Arthur Conan Doyle's 'Professor Challenger,' Robert E. Howard's 'Bran Mak Morn' and 'Solomon Kane,' Lester Dent's 'Doc Savage,' and Burroughs' 'Tarzan,' to name a few...."

18. ———. "A librarian's guide to Dark Horse Comics." Serials Review 24, no. 3/4 (1998): 76.

Profiles Dark Horse Comics, a comic book publisher in the United States. Brief history of Dark Horse Comics; Focus on licensed characters and creator-owned characters; Use of limited series; List of trade paperback compilations; In-dept review of the company's representative titles. Includes references to Doyle and Holmes. "...Raised by apes, Tarzan, the lord of the jungle, is now the sworn protector of the deep jungles and all the creatures therein. Along with Superman and Sherlock Holmes, Tarzan is one of the most recognizable characters in modern fiction. Like Superman and Holmes, the Tarzan character has spawned a legion of imitators, but none has come close to matching the popularity and majesty of the original. Tarzan, who first appeared in All-Story magazine in 1912, was the creation of Edgar Rice Burroughs, a failed businessman turned author....As in Burroughs' novels, the Dark Horse adventures stretch from the turn of the century to the 1940s, though the stories are not told in chronological fashion. In one issue, Tarzan battles mind-controlled Nazis in the jungles of Africa; in the next he tackles the Phantom of the Opera in 1909 Paris. The writers also have fun with the historical settings, using the opportunity for Tarzan to meet such luminaries as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Thomas Edison, and Nikola Tesla...."

Includes a passing reference to Doyle. "...Ka-Zar, Goodman's low-rent version of Tarzan, ran first as the hero of his own short-lived pulp fiction magazine, then as a recurring character in early Timely comics. Stan Lee revived the character in a 1965 issue of Uncanny X-Men, but with a twist. Lee combined the Tarzan-like jungle lord with one of his favorite fictional themes: a hidden land of living dinosaurs, reminiscent of Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World. Lee's Ka-Zar is Lord Kevin Plunder, the son of a British explorer who discovered the Savage Land, a mysterious tropical valley hidden in the polar wastes of Antarctica...."

20. MacDonald, Heidi. "Comics Go to the Movies." Publishers Weekly 250, no. 24 (2003): 30.

Highlights films based on comic books in the U.S. Titles of Marvel comic books made into films; Remarks from Marvel marketing manager Michael Moran regarding films based on comic books; Basis of the film produced by DC Comics. Includes a passing reference to Holmes. "...In contrast to this tangled web, over at DC Comics, their movie offering this year has a single product. The League, starring Sean Connery, is based on The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, a fiendishly clever story that teams various Victorian fictional characters in a plot that ties in everything from H.G. Wells to Sherlock Holmes to Jules Verne to James Bond...."

ISBN 0-9746648-5-5. Gr 8 Up "Doyle's prose and poetry are brought to life in this exciting volume. It has some overlap from the first volume (Eureka, 2002), but also includes some truly outstanding new tales. In 'The Ghosts of Goresthorpe Grange,' a man believes that his house is occupied by spirits and seeks out the help of a medium. Ultimately, he is drugged and swindled, and the dreamlike style of the art reinforces this mood. In 'Two Great Brown-Pericord Motor,' two men create an invention and become fiercely jealous and protective of it, until disaster erupts. This volume also contains two Sherlock Holmes stories and thrilling tales of sea adventures. Though each one is illustrated by a different artist, the writing ties the collection together nicely. Unlike the earlier volume, this one utilizes a consistent comic format throughout. The artists have deftly captured the themes and moods of each piece in the black-and-white illustrations done in a wide range of styles and techniques. This assortment of tales may attract new readers to Doyle's work."

Gr 6 Up--"Taking stories from Alexander Dumas, O. Henry, Arthur Conan Doyle, and others and turning them into comics provides some very entertaining pieces. Colonial explorers, treasure-mad eccentrics, and mysterious figures in seedy taverns populate each tale, with the language mostly updated but still referring to natives as 'brutes.' Each tale is drawn differently, from caricature to stark, matching the tenor of the plot. Settings such as a desert, a jungle, and the American West plus plenty of strange characters bring the adventures alive. This is a thoroughly satisfying affirmation of the magic of reading, taking readers anywhere they want to go."

Scientists investigating the psychology of laughter today revealed the comic tale most likely to tickle the ribs of the nation's population. A total of 100,000 people were invited both to submit and rate jokes as part of a huge experiment called 'Laughlab'. From a collection of 10,000, one joke emerged the winner, with a top rating from 47 per cent of those taking part.
