We recently received these four books through the post and we loved the look of them from the minute we opened the package. Canterbury Classics are bringing these amazing classic stories to a whole new audience in the form of graphic novels under the series Dark Tales.
The stories that have been transformed into this version are Jeanne-Marie Leprince’s “Beauty and the Beast”, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Hound of the Baskervilles”, H. P. Lovecraft’s “The Call of Cthulhu”, and Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen”.
Each of them have been illustrated by different artists, Pete Katz illustrated “Beauty and the Beast”, Dave Shephard illustrated both “The Hound of the Baskervilles” and “The Call of Cthulhu”, and Emilie Majarian illustrated “The Snow Queen”.
We’ve already started reading these and we absolutely adore the content inside. The graphic images paint the story as we read what the characters say. We love the storytelling of the graphic novel, it’s unique compared to the previous graphic novels we have read and really immerses us into the story world. Look out for our reviews of each of the books below, in the coming weeks. For your convenience, we will link each of the reviews under the images as they are published.
