NBA's all-time leading scorer, Washington Post contributor, and New York Times best-selling author, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, is writing a comic book based on Sherlock Holmes's equally-brilliant older brother, Mycroft.

Abdul-Jabbar's Mycroft Holmes and the Apocalypse Handbook, being published by Titan Comics, will be a five-issue series and launch this August. It is being co-written by novelist Raymond Obstfeld and illustrated by Joshua Cassara.

Synopsis:

The series follows the elder Holmes as he travels the world on a mission from the British government to stop a madman intent on utilizing seemingly impossible technology to destroy civilization — and disrespect Queen Victoria in the process, which may be an arguably greater sin.

Abdul-Jabbar previously wrote about Holmes's elder brother for his debut novel, Mycroft Holmes, which was published in September 2015 and co-written by Anna Waterhouse.
