I ask you, is there anything more quintessentially American than being gunned down in a place that you're meant to feel safe? Sometimes I think it should be on U.S. currency.
— Sherlock Holmes to Al Baxter


  • Daniel Spaleniak - Back Home plays as Watson blackmails Emil Kurtz.


  • As Holmes describes to Watson the five ways the Midnight Ranger has died in the comics, his personal favorite is "pushed over a waterfall, locked in the embrace of his nemesis." This is the same manner in which Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes "died" in The Final Problem.
  • The company that delivers the Midnight Ranger comics to Holmes is "APD" (Axiom Parcel Delivery), the company featured in "The Female of the Species".


"I was bitten by a radioactive detective."
―Holmes to Ben Garrett
