A Christmas Carol: The Night That Changed the Life of Eliza Scrooge by Rod Espinosa

Here's a classic story remade with a brand new character...

Dark Horse Books and Net Galley allowed me download an ebook of this story (thank you).  It will be published October 3rd in hardcover, so check with your local bookstore to get a copy.

Mr. Espinosa's art is exquisite.  His graphics make the characters speak to you and express the story nicely.

I especially liked the fact that this Scrooge is female.  I didn't realize it until I started reading the story and that brought a smile to my face.  She wasn't any nicer or kinder than the original Scrooge, but it changes the story somehow when the charactor is a "Miss" instead of a "Mr". The same three ghosts come to visit, she also has a major change of heart and her own life becomes more joyful as do the lives of those around her.

If nothing else, this is worth buying for the artwork and for the unique version of A Christmas Carol.  Why not read something different to the family this year?

Happy reading.
