    One thought on “The Strange Case of Mr. Hyde Volume 1”

    1. A surprisingly good and well-written comic book sequel to the classic story with Jekyll/Hyde a sort of Hannibal Lecter figure to a promising young detective on the trail of a murderer. Simple, but effective art whose only failing is that half the characters look like David Tennant. Well worth a read.

    2. REVIEW ALSO ON: dailyblam/news/2012/02A new villain is loose in London, and only incarcerated criminal Henry Jekyll can help Scotland Yard stop Jack the Ripper. Set five years after the events in Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the trade collection of The Strange Case of Mr. Hyde is From Hell meets The Silence of the Lambs meets hilarity.As a huge fan of the original novella, which explores themes of good and evil, morality, and the masks we wear, [...]

    3. Exceptionally good sequel/mash-up blending Stevenson's terror with the Ripper murders in Whitechapel in the late 1800s. Haddon's characterizations are tremendous and the story is a fun read from first page to last. Corley's art is the perfect compliment. I certainly hope this isn't the last we see of these characters.

    4. A really fun retelling/retooling of the Hyde story, pitting him against Jack the Ripper. The art was good and the writing was great. It was a little reminiscent of "Silence of the Lambs," but I still enjoyed it. I'll have to see what else develops. It could be the start of a fun series.

    5. I loved this. Mystery, a serial killer, and a character from one of my favorite classic novels all in one lovely mesh of pretty illustration. Plus, it's short, so it's great as a filler.

    6. Alright, first of all, I have been a huge fan of Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde for a while now. It's my favourite novella, and the story of Dr Jekyll has really ensnared me. I just can't get enough of it, so, of course, I leaped at the chance to read this comic. I am, however, very picky and critical in my judgements of apdatations of the novella and sequels to it, no matter what form they come in. I really do no thing there is a genuinely good film adaptation of it. But, [...]

    7. Lontoon Whitechapelin syrjäisillä kujilla surmataan prostituoituja, ja kaikki merkit viittäävät siihen, ettei rikossarjan takana ole aivan tavallisin voimin varustettu henkilö. Itse asiassa tapauksessa tuntuu olevan paljon samaa kuin viisi vuotta aiemmin sattuneessa pahamaineisessa rikossarjassa, jonka seurauksena Edward Hyden nimeä ei vieläkään haluta lausua ääneen. Niinpä nuori poliisitarkastaja Adyon joutuu vastentahtoisesti hakemaan apua vankilan teräsovien takana lojuvalta toh [...]

    8. Kijk zie, ‘t is nog eens Victoriana. Er zijn Jack The Ripper-achtige toestanden aan de gang (Spring-heeled Jack, die Dear Boss-brief), en een jonge politiekerel moet op onderzoek. Hij roept, tegen zijn zin, de hulp in van Dr. Jekyll.Jekyll zit na een faliekant in een moord afgelopen experiment (twee keer raden wat dát zou kunnen geweest zijn, eh heh heh) in de gevangenis, uiteindelijk mag hij mee op onderzoek, gebruiken ze alsnog zijn elixir, en helemaal uiteindelijk vinden ze wat de moorden [...]
