Description

A graphic novel by the mind behind the Dirk Gently TV show, the Darkness Visible graphic novel, and the Jagged Little Pill Broadway musical, Gray is a reimagined, modern feminist, politically charged update on Oscar Wilde’s A Picture of Dorian Gray. Warning, sexual violence. Based on Oscar Wilde’s novel, a classic of gothic literature. It’s a tale of the most beautiful man of his age, who sells his soul and his conscience in exchange for eternal youth, beauty and power – and who spends his life murdering, raping and corrupting. All the time in his attic, his picture degrades and rots.

Gray takes Wilde’s classic novel and reinvents it as a tale of cathartic revenge for the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter era, a violent fantasy about how powerful, super-rich white men don’t always win, how the powerless can find justice, and about how a murderous demon and a law-abiding detective can be soul mates.

“If you like your comics spicy and your characters vengeful, Gray is a rollicking mystery about gender, power, privilege, and justice, a 21st century updating of Oscar Wilde, with a decidedly #MeToo stance. -Winnie M Li, Edgar-nominated author of Dark Chapter

“An inventive, empowered, and thoroughly entertaining twist on a classic. Gorgeous, provocative, and damn hard to put down.” -Diablo Cody, Oscar-Winning Screenwriter of Juno and Broadway’s Jagged Little Pill
