The Count of Monte Cristo - adapted by R. Jay Nudds

Ok, you know I had to read a comic version of the story after I read the original. This adaptation isn't bad, and gives a relatively good summary of the events. However, there are many characters and a reader can lose track of them not having spent fifty pages on any one of them and instead simply remembering who is who by their illustration. Additionally, the power and depth of Edmund's revenge plans and the feeling of empathy for him (and even the "victims") are difficult, again due to the necessary shortness of the comic version.
