Graphic Novel Review: "Snow White" by Matt Phelan
The art is gorgeous. I hadn't read very far when I stopped to show my coworker the lovely charcoal drawings with pops of red for special emphasis. I really love the illustrations.
The structure of the story is interesting too. The majority of the panels do not have any dialogue. But the story is broken down into small sections with title pages, very much like how it was done in the silent movies of that era. I thought that was pretty cool.
I really liked seeing Snow White reimagined in this way. It is definitely worth checking out.
