Description
Good and evil, right and wrong. Both are seen through the eyes of John Utterson, a lawyer and friend of the scientist Dr. Jekyll. After hearing the alarming account of the horrendous trampling of a small girl "like some damned juggernaut" by a violent man named Mr. Hyde, who also holds a connection to the lawyer's dear friend, Utterson's curiosity gets the better of him and he begins to investigate. As he probes further into the events and the hidden life of Mr. Hyde, Utterson slowly uncovers a terrifying and ghastly story.
This graphic novel adaptation of RL Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde brings together the creative comic "dream team" of Alan Grant and Cam Kennedy and is a follow-up to their first collaboration, Kidnapped -- The Graphic Novel.
