Moriarty The Patriot by Ryosuke Takeuchi

Reviewed by Jess H (Library Staff)

Before he became Sherlock Holmes’ rival, James Moriarty was a crime consultant hellbent on destroying the unfair class system of England in the 1800s. In this manga, we see James begin his quest as an underclass orphan who had been taken in by the Moriarty noble family alongside his younger brother, Louis. Only Albert, the eldest Moriarty son, treats the boys with dignity. Together, the three of them decide to pursue their ideal world by punishing the corrupt nobles and creating a more balanced world.

The concept and characters are interesting and the episodic nature of the chapters make for a quick read.
