Sexton Blake back in print

A CITY publisher has landed the licence to print books featuring the fictional detective Sexton Blake.

Blake – branded “the poor man’s Sherlock Holmes” – first appeared in several of the penny dreadful-style British comics and magazines of the latter 19th and early 20th centuries.

Obverse Books intends to resurrect the Sexton Blake Library, commencing with a new novella by best-selling genre author George Mann entitled Sexton Blake and the Vengeful Dead, combined with a reprint of classic stories.
