Preview: Gaston Leroux’s Gothic Masterpiece Adapted- ‘The Phantom Of The Opera’

by Brendan M. Allen

A pop culture phenomenon for over a century, The Phantom of the Opera has thrilled generations. There have been several classic film adaptations and Andrew Lloyd Weber’s iconic stage musical grossed $6 billion in receipts over its 30 year run. 

Publisher A Brave New World brings a new trade paperback version of Gaston Leroux’s gothic masterpiece that they claim is the most lavish and authentic comics adaptation to date. Rather than set off in a new direction or take too much inspiration from the stage musical version, writer Varga Tomi opted for a straight take, adapting Leroux’s original text to graphic novel format.   

‘The Phantom of the Opera, the iconic gothic romance, is retold with all the spectacle its legend demands in this devoted graphic novel expectation that marries stunning artwork with Gaston Leroux’s haunting prose.’
