Moriarty 5 CoverMoriarty #5
Written by Daniel Corey
Artwork by Anthony Diecidue

Letters by Dave Lanphear
Image Comics
Release Date October 5, 2011
Cover Price: $2.99

Death is a part of life, and also one of its great mysteries. Despite death’s inevitability, we know very little about what occurs after our final moments. It can be very upsetting to dwell on this thought, and it is easy to ignore because the majority of us have no idea when or how it will happen. It’s impossible to change or prevent an event you know nothing about, so what point is there in fretting over it? Life is certainly easier not knowing what fate will befall you, but what if you did know? What if you were shown the exact moment of death, but not the events leading up to it? In Moriarty #5, one of fiction’s greatest minds must contemplate this, and in doing so must delve into darkness for his answers.

In all of fiction, every classic hero has at least one villain who distinguishes themselves above all others. Victories over classic villains are what makes our heroes necessary in the first place, and in time, each character becomes defined by the other’s presence. One such landmark pairing, that of the detective Sherlock Holmes and Professor James Moriarty, has survived several decades and has seen portrayal in many mediums. In Image Comics Moriarty Vol. 1: The Dark Chamber, writer Daniel Corey examines the world surrounding the erstwhile antagonist after his counterpart’s demise.

In the world of Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes has been dead for twenty years, and the seeds of World War I have been sewn. James Moriarty’s station in life has changed, feeling lost after Holmes’ death. He had thought he wanted the world, but without Holmes around to validate his scheming, he turns to a quieter, disaffected life on the fringe of the underground to pass the time. A man by the name of ‘Smith’ uncovers Moriarty and charges him with locating Mycroft Holmes, brother to Sherlock and lynchpin in a layered, fantastical mystery. On his journey, Moriarty must retread much of his past, make allies of old enemies, and decipher who and what it is that has everyone so scared of the name Tartarus.

Every now and then, an original graphic novel can spark emotion out of you. The best ones can make you feel like you know the characters and have an emotional attachment to said characters. In An Elegy for Amelia Johnson, writer Andrew Rostan and artists Dave Valeza and Kate Kasenow tell a brilliant story of friendship, forgiveness, love, and death. The story is about Amelia Johnson, a 30-year-woman who has been diagnosed with cancer and enlists her two best friends to deliver her last video messages to her other closest friends. Amelia’s best friends: Henry, a filmmaker, and Jillian, a magazine writer, go on a countrywide journey to deliver Amelia’s last words to close friends, but also film the conversations about Amelia.
