The North American manga publisher Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Tuesday that it will publish Kaoru Shintani's (Area 88, Cleopatra DC) Christie: High Tension manga in English under the title Young Miss Holmes.
The story of Young Miss Holmes revolves around Sherlock Holmes' niece. The manga re-imagines many famous cases from the Sherlock Holmes franchise. Shintani has been drawing Christie: High Tension in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Flapper since 2007.
Seven Seas describes the manga as follows:
Christie Holmes is a prodigy. At ten years old, she's as familiar with the sciences and classics as any older student at Cambridge or Oxford. And her facility with logic is reminiscent of her uncle, the eminent Sherlock Holmes himself. So, what's a brilliant young girl to do when her parents are away in India, leaving her behind in the care of maids and servants? Solve mysteries, of course.
Along with her giant hound Nelson, Christie's implacable curiosity leads her from one dangerous adventure to another, often joining forces with Uncle Sherlock and Doctor Watson on their famed investigations. Christie may look pint-sized, but her clever mind is never to be underestimated!
Seven Seas will release the manga in a two-in-one omnibus format. The first omnibus volume will include a story arc featuring the character Mina Tepes from Nozomu Tamaki's Dance in the Vampire Bund manga. Seven Seas will release the first omnibus volume of Young Miss Holmes in March 2012.
