The Picture of Dorian Gray

"Beauty is a form of genius – is higher than genius, as it needs no explanation… It makes princes of those who have it. Beauty is the wonder of wonders. Only shallow people do not judge by appearances."  Oscar Wilde's classic novel  The Picture of Dorian Gray, reinvented in this striking graphic novel, is the story of a man who, exhilarated by his own beauty, pledges his very soul in a desperate bid for eternal youth. His wish is magically granted: a portrait of Dorian, painted by his friend Basil, begins to age in his place. Dorian's naïveté soon turns into narcissism and a dangerous sense of invulnerability. Influenced by the decadent aristocrat Lord Henry, he embarks upon a career of selfish hedonism and depravity, ruining several lives on the way.   With great skill and artistic flair, Ian Edginton and artist I.N.J. Culbard bring Oscar Wilde's morally ambiguous take on the Gothic thriller to the graphic novel form.
