Students of English Literature should be eternally grateful for this Graphic Novel adaptation of a core classic.
The simple black and white noir-style graphics contemporise the satirical content whilst aiding differentiation between the many realms and circles in Dante’s compelling trawl through a unique afterlife.
Chwast’s vision is a brief and entertaining read that may just inspire you to seek out – and perhaps better appreciate – Dante’s original.

Recommended reading because Graphic Novels are about more than Superheroes…

Two great comic studios, two iconic superheroes, two summer blockbuster movies ~ who wins? You decide…
Vertigo’s paranormal PI deserves to be as iconic as any DC or Marvel hero.
Grubby, British, sociopolitical and astute, Constantine’s adventures will appeal to those who want smarts with their supernatural.
There are bigger, more epic story arcs than the standalones in this volume but time in Constantine’s company is always well spent.
Billy Majestic’s arresting Graphic Novel, Humpty Dumpty is a Science Fiction/Horror yarn and definitely not recommended for children.
Vivid colours and smooth digital blending achieve a film-like look; entirely appropriate for a snappy origin tale which plays like a movie storyboard and makes no qualms about its B-Movie intentions.
Redneck grotesques, small-town cops and ethereal aliens provide familiarity whilst the titular Humpty is an atrocity to remind you of the heyday of direct-to-video prosthetic horrors. Humpty’s conception and birth stray into uncomfortable exploitation territory but once the monster madness is underway sequels seem both likely and gory good fun.
