Everyone knows Gilbert and Sullivan were peerless as composers of light opera in Victorian Britain.
But fewer people are aware of their dual identities as super-powered, dapper defenders of the realm!
The Bizarre Adventures of Gilbert & Sullivan: the very model of a modern mirthful graphic novel!
Based on historical facts and characters, Laura Howell conjures a delightful collection of topsy-turvy stories set in the Victorian England of Gilbert & Sullivan.
Illustrated in a Manga style (for which Laura is well-known), this collection is easily readable while retaining the articulation, intelligence and playfulness that distinguished the work of Arthur Sullivan and W.S Gilbert. Featured characters include Oscar Wilde, Wagner, Mad King Ludwig, Verdi and Jack Black, Queen Victoria's official rat catcher.
