I have not read the graphic novels, but I imagine that they are visually great. I went to see the new Holmes this weekend and it was fun. I think that I like that first one a little better, but I want to see the new one again before I decide. The actor who portrays Moriarty is a great choice. The dynamic between the two is very clever.
The weekend started out enjoyable, then on the drive home it turned "interesting!" Interesting HOW, you might ask? Let me put it this way: when the sign says, "Bridge Freezes Before Road,"BELIEVE IT!!! I managed to avoid catastrophe by a whisker, but only just. [black ice ... YUK, TOOEY!]
