Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of good and evil is now vividly illustrated and faithfully retold in graphic-novel form!
In the murky streets of Victorian London, a vicious killer is on the prowl. Who is the mysterious and devilish Mr. Hyde? And why is Henry Jekyll, a respected doctor, protecting him? What could these two men have in common? Stevenson's chilling story of human nature and an experiment that goes terribly wrong comes to life in this graphic-novel format.
In addition to the novel, this edition includes a biography of Robert Louis Stevenson, a history of his writing of the original story, a listing of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde performances, and footnotes to explain difficult words and ideas.

Praise for previous editions:
“Martin Danahay provides an authoritative text, an excellent introductory commentary, an up-to-date bibliography, and a well-chosen set of contextualizing appendices. For an in-depth understanding of Stevenson’s masterpiece of horror, this is the text of choice.” — Patrick Brantlinger, Indiana University
“Martin Danahay’s edition of Jekyll and Hyde is a treasure trove of biographical, cultural, and historical materials. It makes a number of important contexts for interpretation available through its accessible but intriguing assemblage of ancillary documents. It cannot fail to be the inspiration for deeper investigations of a masterpiece that is itself at the crossroads of Victorian anxieties about sex, class, psychology, evolution, and the rise of popular culture.” — John Kucich, University of MichiganFrom the Publisher:
