The idea for The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde famously came to Robert Louis Stevenson one night in a dream. This graphic novel adaptation by Andrzej Klimowski and Danusia Schejbal has transformed that dream into an exquisite nightmare. Their faithful adaptation combines an already-chilling tale with truly haunting artwork. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the story of a respectable London doctor who ends up leading a dreadful double life--as a doctor, and as a cold-blooded murderer. Fans of Stevenson's original novel and new readers will be riveted by this fascinating moral thriller.
