“this comic interlude” [3GAB]  

Sherlock Holmes has appeared in comic strips for nearly a century and in comic books for almost as long. And the comics industry is a multi-billion dollar enterprise, having spawned movies, television shows, and large-scale conventions.

So isn't it time that someone chronicled Sherlock Holmes's appearance in comics? Johanna Draper Carlson has done just that with her new site Sherlock Holmes in Comics.

We chat with her about her early Sherlock Holmes influence (a surprisingly advanced one for a beginner), her work experience with DC Comics, her legacy in writing about comics for the last quarter century, and more.

The Canonical Couplet follows the interview: we give you two lines of poetry, and you need to identify which Sherlock Holmes story they represent. The winner will receive an old Sherlock Holmes comic book.

Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by May 14, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EST. The winner will be chosen at random from among all the correct answers. All listeners are eligible to play.
