"A sharp-witted gloss on the scientific and sexual obsessions of Victorian society."—Time

Please ignore the review below me (the one that says the book is nothing like the film.). The film, quite frankly, is terrible, and the fact that the original source material is nothing like it is recommendation of the highest order. If you like comics, buy this book.

I bought this book because I'm a big fan of the movie. But the book (like all other books that turn movie) is nothing like the movie. Along with a different story plot and different roles that characters play, this book is very, VERY graphic. Guts and gore provided by the remarkable Mr. Hyde, and if you're easily upset by racist comment then don't read this book. You have been warned.
