The Picture of Dorian Gray graphic novel that I read last fall and now a graphic version of The Wizard of Oz that I read last week. I appreciated that this book was based on the original novel rather than the well-known movie. And I do think it could be a good stepping stone for children who might only be familiar with the film's version of things (for example, the ruby slippers). But I think it pales in comparison with L. Frank Baum's wonderful storytelling. I simply finished the book and wanted to go read the original -- to experience the full range of emotions that the novel portrays and not just a few brief action scenes.
Have you read any graphic novel versions of classic stories? What are your thoughts on them? Do you have any suggestions for me of one that you thought was well done?
