Gorgeously illustrated by Doran and written by Gaiman, this is a retelling of "Snow White" from the Queen's perspective. Dark and cold, this graphic novel is atmospheric and difficult to put down.

Lush, dark, and utterly exquisite - Neil Gaiman's mind knows no bounds! For those who love dark fantasy and retellings of classics will devour this in one sitting. You think you know the story of Snow White...until now.

I read this for the "A Book With Illustrations" part of my 2020 reading challenge. This was beautifully done, both the story and the artwork. It was a much darker take on the classic/Disney Snow White tale and I loved it. Not for kids.

Gaiman's and Doran's take on the classic Snow White fairytale is gloriously spine-tingling and elegantly beautiful. The tale is told from the perspective of the Queen, who rises to power after the man she loves dies. Snow White though isn't an innocent figure. She is a depraved creature that starts to devour the kingdom after a failed attempt at her life. There is room for doubt though, as the creators leave readers to decide whether they believe the Queen is a reliable, or unreliable narrator. Each spread presents a tableau of interconnected images that create a silky flow to the reading experience. Colours tonally shift from the sensuous warmer hues during intimate scenes, to more disturbingly mysterious purples for acts of the fae-like child. While the text focuses on expressing the Queen's perspective with a fairytale like narration, the art adds volumes of sumptuous detail to the world, with intricately designed glass windows, patterned clothes, and a Snow White with a Japanese doll-like appearance. This graphic novel fills the senses, and is an absolutely brilliant edition to the Snow White tradition.

If a book has Neil Gaiman's name on it, I have to read it and this graphic novel was no exception. Beautifully illustrated, I love how it shows a different depiction of Snow White.
