CBR Review: Sherlock Holmes #5

I recently reviewed Sherlock Holmes #5 and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "'The Trial of Sherlock Holmes' finally gets to the actual trial as Holmes is charged with murdering a man in a locked room in a house guarded by police officers.

Like the readers, everyone in the comic seems to think that the trial will allow Holmes to prove his innocence and solve the mystery in a very public and dramatic fashion. How he explains his innocence is what this issue revolves around and, while a little long-winded, it is intricate and fits with everything that’s come before."
