- THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE - A Graphic Novel
DetailsBold visionary, Henry Jekyll, believes he can use his scientific knowledge to divide a person into two beings–one of pure good and one of pure evil. Working tirelessly in his secret laboratory, concocting a potion that would tear at the core of what makes a man human, he eventually succeeds–but only halfway.Instead of separating the good and evil halves, Jekyll isolates only the latter. What seems at first a relief to the doctor becomes a nightmare as he loses control of the transformation. His friends feel Jekyll will waste away and fear the worst.Can Jekyll undo what he has done? Or will it change things forever?ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1850.

Stevenson later created an infamous, but very intriguing, character in The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, published in 1886. In 1887, Stevenson headed for America. It was soon after this move that he took up his pen for The Master of Ballantrae, a novel which is considered one of his best works. Stevenson died in 1894.
