A Brilliant Comic Adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Classic Book, A Christmas Carol Graphic Novel
For many years, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has been considered not only one of the best Christmas-themed books but also one of the best books in literature. This classic work had been adapted into many forms and media, including stage performances, films and movies, radio shows, and also comics and graphic novels.
One of the biggest Comic book publishing companies in Britain, Markosia, published a graphical adaptation of A Christmas Carol. Dickens’s story was rewritten by Stephen L. Stern (known for his Beowulf Graphic Novel) and illustrated by artist Douglas A. Sirois. The collaboration between Stern and Sirois successfully brings the ageless classic to life in a brilliant, full-color graphic novel.
The story in A Christmas Carol graphic novel focuses on Ebenezer Scrooge. He is probably the perfect example of a grumpy old man, all-work-and-no-play kind of person. The only thing in his mind is how to make his already rich life even richer. Every holiday is just a waste of time for him, even Christmas time. Merry-making is a nonsensical concept for Scrooge, let alone sharing with the less fortunate. However, a special visit from some unexpected guests will absolutely change Scrooge.
