"Here's the mashup you didn't know you were waiting for: Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo meets Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Read about the world's greatest detective completely out of his mind on drugs while he tries to solve cases in Victorian England - Fear and Loathing
style. The combination makes a little bit of sense if you think about it but it's brilliance is in how far off it is from what you'd expect from a Sherlock Holmes book. Holmes
was originally self-published by creator Omaha Perez and is now being collected in trade paperback format by AiT/Planet Lar."
Speaking of Matt Price,
Pat Tucker points me over to some kind words Matt had for us on the company's anniversary that I'd missed. Matt blogs from NewsOK his top books from us:"In honor of the 9th anniversary, here are my nine favorite books that came out from AiT/Planet Lar:
2. The Annotated Mantooth
3. The Last of the Independents
4. Astronauts in Trouble
5. Electric Girl
6. Seven Sons
7. Channel Zero
8. Couscous Express
9. Scurvy Dogs"
Three actioners we OK'd from Bri Wood, two solids from Matt Fraction, a sci-fi, some humor, an all-ages book, and historical fiction. That's a pretty good slice from a retailer/writer/reporter. Thanks, Matt!

" and he doesn't have that long to wait; Omaha Perez' Holmes
is in-shops today.
University of Oklahoma's prestigious World Literature Today
magazine reviews The Homeless Channel:
I sense AiT advocate Matt Price's hand in this one.
"HOLMES GN written and illustrated by Omaha Perez.
Author Perez explains it best: 'What if Sherlock Holmes is constantly out of his head and Watson’s not much better off, the Dr. Gonzo to Holmes’s Raoul Duke?' This week’s 'Gotta-look!'"
