Moriarty the Patriot Manga Has Project in the Works

posted on by Karen Ressler

This year's November issue of Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine announced last Thursday that Ryōsuke Takeuchi and Hikaru Miyoshi's Yūkoku no Moriarty (Moriarty the Patriot) manga has a project in the works, and it will be announced in the next issue on November 2.

The manga debuted in August 2016. Takeuchi draws the storyboards and Miyoshi provides the art. The sixth volume shipped on July 4 and the seventh volume will ship on November 7.

The story's protagonist is James Moriarty, the famous antagonist from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes series. In the manga, he is an orphan who assumes the name William James Moriarty when he and his younger brother are adopted into the Moriarty family. As a young man, he seeks to remove the ills caused by England's strict class system.
