Dark Horse Comics has announced their latest Neil Gaiman adaptation. Gaiman’s Hugo and Locus award-winning short story “A Study in Emerald” is being adapted by Eisner winner Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire, Blue Beetle) and Rafael Scavone (Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special), with colors by Dave Stewart (Hellboy, Black Hammer). The 80-page hardcover will be in stores on June 20 for an MSRP of $17.99.

A Study in Emerald brings together the mythoses created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and H.P. Lovecraft. A brilliant detective and his partner attempt to solve a horrific murder in the Whitechapel slums. They soon find themselves at the Palace, where a Great Old One in the guise of the Queen consults with them about the case.

The award-winning tale appears in Gaiman’s short story collection Fragile Things and New Cthulhu: The Recent Weird, an anthology edited by Paula Guran. The story has also inspired a board game (see “Martin Wallace's 'Study In Emerald' 2E”).

Dark Horse has a few Neil Gaiman releases in store for 2018. The company will release a deluxe hardcover graphic novel adaptation of Only the End of the World Again on January 24 (see “Dark Horse Resurrects Lovecraftian Neil Gaiman Story”), and the first collection of their American Gods adaptation will be on shelves on February 28 (see “'American Gods Volume 1: Shadows'”).
