Turning a massive novel into three 48-page graphic novels implies a great deal of compression, but Mousse’s adaptation is not only faithful, it is pitch perfect. Mousse is a confident artist whose art style is refreshingly loose and cartoony, yet loaded with accurate detail. Moody chiaroscuro abounds. The sober, subdued colors are the work of Marie Galopin.
Hopefully, this will be available in English soon. If you can’t wait for a translation, this one is worth getting for the artwork alone. You can buy the book through Amazon.fr, Fichtre! in Montreal, or Librairie Pantoute in Québec City.By the way, when he's done with Frankenstein, Mousse plans to take on Gaston Leroux' The Phantom of the Opera.
