Moriarty the Patriot, Volume 4: 01/20/22
Moriarty the Patriot, Volume 4 by Ryōsuke Takeuchi and Hikaru Miyoshi (Illustrations) returns to the source material's roots, while expanding on the MI6, James Bond, tangent. Moran and Moneypenny are sent to India.
I much prefer these spy plots to the revenge killing plots. It's interesting to see how well the two mystery series blend together. The Bond plots help to give the manga a well needed focus. Left to its own devices, this series can quickly devolve into a fetishization of violence.
This plot too ties back to Watson's backstory as a soldier and medic who served in Afghanistan. Here the goal is stop a top level gunrunner who is trying to keep the war going.
The English translation of volume 5 released in October 2021.
