Animal Crackers: Preview The Island of Dr. Moreau #2 By Rodriguez, Adams, And IDW
by Olly MacNamee
The concluding issue of Gabríel Rodriguez’s adaption of H G Wells’s classic novel, The Island of Dr. Moreau is out this week from IDW and, as a big fan of Rodriguez’s I was always going to be posting preview of this issue. Clearly a passion project for Rodriguez and not necessarily your average comic book, it’s a great book with great art. And, at only two issues in length, you may still be able to pick up the first issue from your local comic book store when you go and pick up this copy. Of course, he’s helped out with the adaptation by fellow scribe Ted Adams, and coloured by Nelson Dániel, with letters by Robbie Robbins.
By the writer of Diablo House and artist of Locke & Key!
The action ramps up as Ellie learns more about Moreau’s experiments on the animals that have been brought to the island. At the same time, the animals start to question the authority of the man who changed them. Will Moreau’s hubris lead to his own downfall? Will Ellie escape the island? Find out in The Island of Dr. Moreau #2.
