Fagin the Jewby Will Eisner (Artist), Diana Schutz (Editor)
Comics luminary Will Eisner takes on literary giant Charles Dickens, in this fascinating retelling of the life of Oliver Twist's Fagin! Imagining Fagin's impoverished childhood in the slums of London and his initiation into the criminal underworld, Eisner's story counters the anti-Semitism of Victorian literature as his gorgeous brushwork creates an evocative portrait of the era.
* Now with Eisner's previously unused full-color cover art!
* Foreword by Brian Michael Bendis!
* Introduction by Dickens scholar Jeet Heer!
