'Interview With The Vampire: Claudia's Story' (graphic novel)
'A richly-illustrated adaptation of Anne Rice's novel, told through the eyes of the vampire Claudia, who was just a little girl when she was turned by the vampire Lestat. Though she spends many years of happiness with her two vampire fathers, she gradually grows discontent with their insistence upon treating her like a little girl, even though she has lived as long as any mortal and her lust to kill is certainly no less than theirs…'
I’ve only just discovered this, and despite this story being oh-so-many years old, I’d still like to read it. I must admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of manga artwork, but this is something quite beautiful. The illustrations are so lush and full of detail and the decision to present everything in sepia tone (with red as a spot colour for blood) is genius. Heck, I might have to buy it just for the portrayal of moody Louis. He always was my favourite of Rice’s vampires (sorry Lestat, you’re too arrogant).
