If you’re going to Fanexpo Canada, be sure to check out the TCW’s Holmes Inc. booth. Graduates of Ty Templeton’s Comic book bootcamp have published their first Fit to Print Project and it looks good. Up-and-coming writers, artists, inkers, and letterers have collaborated on this new spin on the Sherlock Holmes. You might even be able to snag a new sketch or two. Check out their progress at www.holmesinc.wordpress.com.
