Book 4: Anne Rice's The Vampire Lestat A Graphic Novel

I didn't even know about this until I happened upon it on ebay. Oh its good! Its adapted by Faye Perozich and painted by Daerick Gross. It took me a little while to read because I kept having to stop and admire the beautiful artwork. Although Lestat looks more like Rutger Hauer here than the youthful Stuart Townsend but it kept to the original piece very well in my opinion. And it did make me want to adapt everything I've ever read into comic book format for a while... Which I may do one of these days if I was a way better artist anyhoo hehe.

"The story begins in our time 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 as 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 captivated millions of readers".
