"I went down into the vaults. There lay the Count! He was either dead or asleep, I could not say which - for the eyes were open and stony but without the glassiness of death."
The classic gothic horror story, presented in a totally engaging way through the immensly powerful illustrations. Staying true to the events of the original prose novel, this Quick Text edition features simplified and reduced dialogue to help reluctant readers and ELL students to engage with the text.
Designed to encourage readers to enjoy classical literature, titles in the Classical Comics range stay true to the original vision of the authors. They also offer alternative text versions to cater for different readership levels. This title has been moderately and sympathetically abridged from the original text to fit within the graphic novel format. Despite that, all of the events of the book are represented in every version -- it's only the speech and captions that change! Like all of their titles, this Classical Comics production remains true to the original novel, and features incredible artwork that will engage any reader.
