Oliver Twist is one of the most well-known stories ever told, about a young orphan who has to survive the mean streets of London before ultimately being rescued by a kindly benefactor.
But it is his friend, the Artful Dodger, who has the far more intriguing tale, filled with more adventure and excitement than anything boring Oliver could possibly get up to. Throw in some vampires and a plot to overthrow the British monarchy, and what you have is the thrilling account that Charles Dickens was too scared to share with the world.
From the brilliant mind of novelist and comic book veteran Peter David, Artful is the dark, funny, and action-packed story of one of the most fascinating characters in literary history.
Here is what I thought
So this is a book graphic novel about The Artful Dodger but with a twist, there are vampires. Dodger was minding his own business when he sees a woman in trouble and when he saved her he didn’t know how much his life would change. She ends up being the princess and Mr. Fang a vampire wants her and Dodger and Bram (Van Helsing’s son) do there best to keep her out of harms way but they can’t fight all the vampires so she gets kidnapped. They have to try and save her from the vampires.
I enjoyed this graphic novel and how they took a character from Oliver Twist and added vampires. It was a fun story and I liked the art work. The vampires had these creepy red eyes…lol.
If your a graphic novels fan then I think you will enjoy this one.
