I normally love graphic novel adaptations of classics as it helps make very elite reading more accessible. However, I think this proves that Dickens' plots are just too complex to translate well into a summarized graphic novel form. It loses a lot of the brilliance, and this comes off stilted and harsh. The original is so much more. If you absolutely can't understand the original, I guess this is an ok way to get it. And I get that. A lot of the students I work with wouldn't get past the first chapter. But if you have the patience and reading level, please go read the original instead.
Notes on content: No language issues. No sexual content. One beheaded head held aloft, one stabbing victim shown. It's pretty bloody.
