With its glamorous vampires and historical sweep, Anne Rice’s Interview With The Vampire seems like a natural for the graphic novel treatment. To date, there’s only one: Claudia’s Story.
Interview with the Vampire: Claudia’s Story (4/5 stars, currently priced at $9.99)
A richly-illustrated graphic novel adaptation of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire, 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 man…and her lust to kill is certainly no less than theirs…
“Witter’s art is delicate, with a baroque manga feel… Louis and Lestat’s lovely faces come to life, collars are fluffed with detailed antique lace, and many bites are bitten. Most effectively drawn is young Claudia, flashing from innocent to monstrous by the panel.”
