An excerpt:

LONDON (AFP) - The mysterious death of Britain's leading Sherlock Holmes expert appears to have been a bizarre suicide plot deliberately based on one of the cases tackled by the fictional detective himself, a report said.

According to friends of Richard Lancelyn Green, he appears to have dressed up his suicide as murder in an attempt to get at an enemy from beyond the grave, a notion lifted from one of Holmes's adventures, the Sunday Times said.

In March this year, the body of Lancelyn Green, a 50-year-old academic, was found at his home, asphyxiated with a shoelace. An inquest was unable to decide what had happened and recorded an open verdict.

However friends believe Lancelyn Green killed himself and deliberately tried to get an American academic rival, whom the paper did not name, framed for the murder.

While I can appreciate the fact that Steve McNiven put a lot of love into his artwork (and it shows), two months is too long a wait for THIS. This issue would have been less than average on a monthly title, much less a bi-monthly mega-event.
