Book Review - Evil Thing: A Villains Graphic Novel

Evil Thing: A Villains Graphic Novel

About the Book

“Sure, you know the story of those wretched Dalmatians. But don’t I deserve a chance to tell my own side of the story? It is fabulous, after all.

”You may think you know the tale: a happy young couple, one hundred and one Dalmatians, and the woman determined to turn them into a perfectly spotted fur coat.

But who is that monster, that scene-stealer, that evil thing? Who is the woman behind it all? Before the car crash, before the dognapping, before furs became her only true love, there was another story. This is the story of Cruella De Vil—in her own words.

Even the cruelest villains have best friends, true loves, and daring dreams. After all, nothing is as simple as black and white.

In this first graphic novel adaptation of the New York Times best-selling Villains series, Arielle Jovellanos brings Serena Valentino’s darkly captivating world to life with beautiful and haunting illustrations in a stunning new visual format.

My Take on the Book
This is a great new way to look at an iconic villain. If you have ever been interested in Cruella De Wil, this new graphic novel will challenge your notions of what you know or at least what you think you know. It is a great story that will engage you from beginning to end. The illustrations jump off the page and really draw you into the story and into who Cruella really is. I know for me this is a book that really explores things about this villain that I could not have known, but I am glad to know now and any Disney fan will love this story too!
