The graphic novel Victorian Undead: Sherlock Holmes vs Zombies! (2010), written by Ian Edginton, illustrated by Davide Fabbri and set in London, is an example of neo-Victorian cultural and historical rewriting of the past: in an alternative late nineteenth-century, London is invaded by a horde of ravenous zombies, against which Sherlock Holmes and Watson fight in order to save the British Empire. Whereas the depiction of zombies as social outcasts and racial aliens in Victorian Undead replicates Conan Doyle’s retracing of crimes as coming from the socially ‘deviant’ representatives of lower classes and colonial aliens, at the same time the image of Victorian zombies ravaging London streets reflects the impact that contemporary perceptions of urban violence have on the re-visioning of the Victorian age.
