Book Review of Anne Rice's The Vampire Lestat: The Graphic Novel

Anne Rice's The Vampire Lestat: The Graphic Novel
reviewed on + 255 more book reviews

The illustrations are very 80s. The story begins in the late 80s with Lestat, tall, blond, and handsome, a world-renowned rock star. His gifts are timeless, his youth never withers. But he was not always the powerful and famous child of darkness. Before his long earth-encrusted sleep, he was an aristocrat in the heady days of pre-Revolutionary France. It was then that he came face-to-face with the incarnation of evil and the temptations of love that he has ravenously pursued through time. Where it has led him and what he has become is the heart of the tale that has captured millions of readers.

The scenes illustrated in this graphic novel are quite explicit and are not intended for young readers.
