Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

by Fiona Macdonald, Penko Gelev, Robert Louis Stevenson, Fiona Macdonald
Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of good and evil is now vividly illustrated and faithfully retold in graphic-novel form!
In the murky streets of Victorian London, a vicious killer is on the prowl. Who is the mysterious and devilish Mr. Hyde? And why is Henry Jekyll, a respected doctor, protecting him? What could these two men have in common? Stevenson's chilling story of human nature and an experiment that goes terribly wrong comes to life in this graphic-novel format.
In addition to the novel, this edition includes a biography of Robert Louis Stevenson, a history of his writing of the original story, a listing of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde performances, and footnotes to explain difficult words and ideas.

Penko Gelev graduated from the National Art School in Sofia, Bulgaria. He is a film and children’s television producer, and also finds time to draw comics and illustrations.
