Authors: Cam Kennedy (illustrator) and Alan Grant (adaptor and writer), adapted from the story by Robert Louis Stevenson
This graphic novel is an interpretation of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic from the creative comic books ‘dream team’ of illustrator Cam Kennedy and writer Alan Grant.
In Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde good and evil, right and wrong, joy and despair are seen through the eyes of John Utterson, a lawyer and friend of the scientist, Dr Henry Jekyll. After relating the alarming account of an angry man assaulting and trampling a small girl ‘like some damned juggernaut’, he begins to investigate the odd behaviour of his friend. As he probes further he uncovers a terrifying and horrific story.
Ideal for schools, the text and story of this graphic novel are faithful to Stevenson’s original novella. This book was originally part of the UNESCO City of Edinburgh’s first reading campaign, and the enduring legacy of this work means the subsequent reprints of the book keep the story in this format available
Robert Louis Stevenson already has huge appeal – this interpretation spans the pre-teens, teens and graphic novel markets.
Cam Kennedy is known internationally for his portrayals of Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper, Daredevil and Punisher, Spectre, Lobo, Batman, Star Wars: Dark Empire and Star Wars: Dark Empire 2 – the two series that relaunched the Star Wars franchise in comics.
Alan Grant’s work includes Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Robo-Hunter and Ace Trucking Co., Doomlord, Joe Soap Private Eye, Computer Warrior, The Outsiders, plus Nightbreed and The Last American, Detective Comics, Shadow of the Bat, Lobo, L.E.G.I.O.N. ’89, Legends of the Dark Knight, and The Demon.
