“Subversive satires that vary from the wickedly funny to the curiously bittersweet.” – Jeff Kapalka, Syracuse Post-Standard
• This series was awarded the Eisner award winner for Best Artist and the Harvey award for Best Graphic Album
Volume 3 adapts The Birthday of the Infanta. One of comic art’s most respected and pioneering artists, well known for his opera adaptations and beautiful fantasy work, P. Craig Russell has adapted Oscar Wilde’s famous fairy tales in a series of landmark volumes.
•Literary review magazine
“An attractive introduction to Wilde’s tales.”
Comic Book Resources
“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.”
•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.”
