Booklist

•Literary review magazine

“An attractive introduction to Wilde’s tales.”

Comic Book Resources

•Comics website

“Russell manages to capture the tone of the fairy tale perfectly, neither letting Wilde do most of the heavy lifting nor leaving so much out that the original author seems ill-served. Would that all literary to comic adaptations could be so graceful.”

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“Wilde isn't blatanly jeering at hypocrites or credulous fools in these stories. He is, however, suggesting that even the most genuinely beautiful surfaces shouldn't be trusted. Russell catches this mood perfectly, not trying to overshadow Wilde but merely helping him do his disturbing work. Russell's exquisite art has a supple ink line that's never fussy.”
