James O'Barr's gothic masterpiece is back with a vengeance, in a remastered edition with an all-new cover!

When Eric Draven and his fiancée, Shelly, are murdered on the eve of their wedding, the gang of vicious, drugged-up hoodlums who attacked them believe they've got clean away. But a mysterious man in black is stalking the city streets... a man with a painted face, impervious to harm, and with a mission of vengeance...

Now the gang are being picked off one by one, their executioner a chilling spectre of death, always accompanied by a crow. Eric Draven has returned from the grave - and by the time he is finished, Hell will have a few new inmates...

 Graphic Novel Indeed!

I've only recently been getting into comics and graphic novels, but "The Crow" stands out as being one of the most disturbing, powerful and emotional that I've read. Starkly drawn, mostly in black and white, the only comparison visually would be Frank Miller's "Sin City", but unlike Miller, this a much more brooding, intense and dare I say it, depressing work of art.

If you've seen Alex Proyas' film of the same name with Brandon Lee, you'll know exactly what this is about. Essentially a Goth tale of revenge and redemption, Eric Draven is brought back to life by the ominous Crow to avenge his death and the brutal rape and murder of his beloved girlfriend, Shelley. Naturally, this isn't exactly a graphic novel for the kids, and it's relentlessly macabre and gory tone may put some people off, but for those of you who liked the film, this is more of the same, but with O'Barr's genius, in not only the artwork, but his talent to tell a very sad story in such a seemingly personal way.

If you're a fan of the film, TV series or even just a fan of good literature you simply must own this beautifully tragic graphic novel. Easily up there as one of the best graphic novel's of all time.

Probably the most powerful and beautifully drawn graphic novel ever. Wrote and drawn from the heart by Mr O'Barr. If you have watched the Crow movie or enjoy comics/graphic novels then you must pick this up now. Nuff said!

 the film only with more horror!

if you have seen the first movie in the crow series you will know what to expect. i was a huge fan of the film and have eventually got round to reading the book. the book is slightly different to the film, as it does not have as much of the magic elements as the film does. the book has a bit more of a real edge to it. the art work is excellent, i found myself just looking at the pictures once i had finished reading the book. the introduction also tells you a bit about the background of where the story came from. this is a great graphic novel.
