“This is easily the best volume of Russell's Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde to date. It's easy to see why people who create art hold his work in such regard.” – Greg McElhatton, iComics

• This series was awarded the Eisner award winner for Best Artist and the Harvey award for Best Graphic Album

The next volume in the prize-winning and greatly acclaimed complete adaptations of Wilde’s tales presents
The Devoted Friend on what constitutes real friendship, and The Nightingale and the Rose, a stirring story of sacrifice to love with a cruel twist.

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.

“The illustrations are colorful and exquisite, both stories demonstrate Wilde's gift for obvious irony and provide excellent lessons for readers of any age.” –
Bloomsburg Review

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.”
