Fagin the JeweBook - 2013
Comics luminary Will Eisner takes on literary giant Charles Dickens, in this fascinating retelling of the life of Oliver Twist's Fagin! Imagining Fagin's impoverished childhood in the slums of London and his initiation into the criminal underworld, Eisner's story counters the anti-Semitism of Victorian literature as his gorgeous brushwork creates an evocative portrait of the era. This 10th anniversary edition features Eisner's previously unused full-color cover art and a foreword by Brian Michael Bendis! There is also an introduction by Dickens scholar Jeet Heer!. --Provided by publisher.
