This tale pops off the pages in ‘The Phantom of the Opera’
Since I was young, I have always enjoyed watching plays. They take audiences to magical places, and when done right can be a lot of fun. Other times they take you on a musical adventure that is unlike anything you have ever seen. When I heard that The Phantom of the Opera had been made into a graphic novel, I hoped I would get to read it. I was able to get a digital copy of this graphic novel and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for The Phantom of the Opera here:
Everyone has heard the whispered tales of the phantom who lives beneath the opera house, the mysterious trickster behind all the little mishaps and lost things. But no one has ever seen the monster . . . until now. When the promise of blossoming love lures him out from his intricately constructed hideaways in the labyrinthine building’s walls and cellars, a hideously disfigured artist trains the lovely Christine to be the opera’s next star for a steep price. Does she choose her newfound success or her beloved Count Raoul? This doomed love triangle threatens to combust when a tragic death, a series of betrayals, and increasingly dangerous accidents cast the players of The Palais Garnier into a heart-wrenching horror story that will echo through the ages.
I had an absolute blast reading this graphic novel. The story starts simple enough, but about midway through something happens that changes things forever. A woman goes missing for a while, and when they return something has changed about them. They have a tough choice to make, and if they refuse something awful might happen. Fans of this story will want to check this graphic novel out.
