Overview

Discover the definitive and beautiful author’s edition of the classic graphic novel The Crow.

When James O’Barr poured the pain and anguish of a personal tragedy into the drawings that comprise The Crow, his intensely cathartic story of Eric—who returns from the dead to avenge his and his fiancée’s murder at the hands of a street gang—resonated with readers around the world. The illustrated tale that became the “thrilling” (Los Angeles Daily News) and “spectacular” (Chicago Tribune) silver screen triumph was then presented in 2011 as an acclaimed expanded edition, reflecting the vision of the author's original intention, complete at last with thirty pages of additional artwork, an introduction by James O’Barr, and lost sequences restored using the artist’s original technique.

Now this special hardcover release of the 2011 edition continues the legacy of The Crow as the powerful journey of an avenging angel and a celebration of true love...as fierce, intelligent, and unforgettable as when it was first conceived.

This is incredible. An even deeper look into The Crow/Eric Draven. I really liked the additional sections and am so glad I got the Special Edition. I really wish this was available for the Nook. Anyone who really understood the original version will find this really nice extra frosting on the cake.

The story developes well by the second piece and the perspective was well done. I especially liked the last part (and if you read it you'll know why).

I can tell the major differences between this comic and the movie. I absolutely loved this comic book though. I love the illustrations.

I didn't read O'Barr's graphic novel until I was intimately familiar with the movie adaptation by director Alex Proyas, which is also dark and brooding. The experience the graphic novel allows is an empathy with the author. We can posit that there was some tragedy in O'Barr's life that lead him to write the story, and that pain is especially evident early in the book.

Although I had been a big comic book fan for most of my childhood, The Crow was the first graphic novel I read. I can't remember exactly, but I believe I read it after the movie was released but before I saw it. There are big differences between the movie and book, but I would say the chances are, if you liked the one, you'll like the other and the differences between the two are enough to make each worth checking out.

I probably would have got into this more if I'd read it back when it was new. It's now such a product of its time as to be distracting. Not to mention I'm just no longer goth enough to be swept up in the darkness, and I was never particularly into pathos. Have to admit I preferred the movie. It didn't meander as much. Maybe the individual issues didn't flow together smoothly enough. Also, one thing the book didn't do any better than the film was develop the pre-tragedy personalities or lives of Eric and Shelley. You know they were cute together and loved each other and didn't have much money, but that is all.

I read the original collection (w/o the additions) and was blown away by how visceral and emotionally wrought The Crow was.  BUT.  There was NOTHING that could have prepared me for reading the Special Edition.  Everything added into this edition fits perfectly and enhances the reading experience.  Please read this graphic novel.  I beg you.  It will make you feel.  It will make you think.  The Crow will change your life.

Loved the book from beginning to end! The art is wonderful and I had to pause at every page just to take it in. The storyline is well thought out and written with the same amazing precision. A must read for all!

I spent forever looking for this book. I've read it at least a dozen times now and it means something new to me every time. I'm not sure that it's for everyone, but if you like graphic novels and literature, this is definitely worth a read. O'Barr adds textures and feelings in black and white that I haven't seen in much other work.
