Tales of Vanity and Vengeance!

US publisher Eureka Productions has just published its latest title, Graphic Classics: Oscar Wilde, featuring work by British comics creator Nick Miller, whose credits include football comic Rammie (see news story) and downthetubes very own Really Heavy Greatcoat.

This Oscar Wilde release marks the sixteenth volume in Eureka’s Graphic Classics series of comics adaptations of great literature, which includes much-praised titles focusing on authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain (see news story), H.P. Lovecraft and others.

Nick Miller and writing partner Antonella Caputo contribute their adaptation of “The Canterville Ghost” to this new volume, which also features “The Picture of Dorian Gray”, Wilde’s tale of narcissism and horror, adapted for comics by Alex Burrows and illustrated by Lisa K. Weber, “Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime” by Rich Rainey and Rich Tommaso, and an adaptation of Wilde’s exotic Biblical play “Salome”, illustrated by Molly Kiely.

A host of creators, including Nick, Antonella, Roger Langridge, Hunt Emerson and more have all contributed to past volumes of Graphic Classics — full list below, all links to amazon.co.uk.
