Gaiman spins the traditional tale of Snow White in a whole different way, not one you would have imagined. It‘s rather melancholy and frightening at the same time. Stunning artwork to feast your eyes on. 👍

Neil Gaiman‘s retelling of Snow White. Look how stunning are the illustrations, by Colleen Doran. And oh my, this book is NOT for children!

So... Reading this at work was a bit risky! So much sex and nudity! I mean I don't mind it and the pictures are beautiful! But... yeah not something I want someone to see over my shoulder! Haha!

This book was stunningly beautiful and incredibly creepy. I'm not normally particularly susceptible to book-related nightmares, but this one gave me nightmares.

effani Litsy's square cropping forced me to cut the artist's name off the bottom of the photo, but the art makes this book at least as much as the writing, so credit is due to Colleen Doran. I definitely don't want to minimize her contribution. (edited) 1mo

Wow! What a twist turn on this fairy tale. The dialogue was a bit odd for me and a bit too much sex I wasn't expecting. But the illustrations were utterly beautiful. Surprised to find this one on Hoopla app. 🤪🤔❤👍

The art is absolutely stunning. Tall art nouveau panels, decorative patterns, flowly, bold lines, beautiful faces, bodies, hair. Scenes blend. Worth reading just for the art.
I did not like the story. Snow White is an evil vampire, and the queen is good. However, Gaiman concentrates on the horror and the sex, so this becomes just an erotic, gory vampire fantasy. No character development or meaning. Too self serving for my taste. ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

GrilledCheeseSamurai I dunno. An erotic, gory vampire fantasy focusing on horror and sex sounds pretty incredible to me? 🤔🤷🏼‍♂️😂😉 2mo
Gezemice @GrilledCheeseSamurai I know many people like that. I just don‘t care for it. 2mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai @Gezemice Yup, Yup! I'm just joshing 'round with ya. 😝. They can't all be winners all the time. 🤷🏼‍♂️ 2mo

I‘d held off getting Colleen Dorman‘s illustrated edition because I already had the one Gaiman did with Charles Vess (although that was in pamphlet form). I‘m glad I broke down because this is gorgeous! Love the Art Nouveau style. 💕 I also love fairy tale retelling and this is a great one.

I read this on Sept 28 in one sitting and gave it 5 ⭐️ on Good Reads. Gaiman‘s Snow White retelling is creepy and Doran‘s illustrations are stunning. It‘s a great take on the original fairy tale.

Another wonderful read by Gaiman. This is a retelling I didn‘t know I needed in my life. The tale is completely flipped and I love it!! The art was gorgeous as well!

My sister said to say “Lots of nakedness going on man” haha. She did enjoy it as well, but she said the wording was a bit confusing but this was also her first Gaiman so I can understand that, I remember my 1st voyage into Gaiman was fun but a little confusing haha.

Snow White, flipped and given the “Wicked“ treatment. Gory with a lot of sex. Scared me more than Coraline, which is saying something. #graphicnovel #fairytale #retelling #nsfw #unlessyourealibrarian

So dark and sooo twisted. The artwork is absolutely phenomenal. I read my libraries copy but I just might have to buy my own now, it was that good.

Literally every page of this book is so gorgeous I can hardly stand it. It is so beautiful! And Gaiman‘s story is a creepy fairytale reimagining, of course. But seriously, the art.

Think you know the the story of Snow White? Think again. This is a gorgeous book. I'm a huge Neil Gaiman fan to start, plus some brilliant illustrations, and I love it when you get a glimpse into the process!

Snow, Glass, Apples ❄️🍎
This is not the story you know...
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This amazing graphic novel retelling by Neil Gaiman and Colleen Doran sheds a whole new light on the princess who was ‘as white as snow‘
Beautiful images and a fantastic story, I just wish it‘d be longer tbh
Has anyone else read this since it‘s release? Have you read anything similar?

Just preordered the paperback version of “Upstream” by Mary Oliver (available Oct. 29 from Penguin) and “Snow, Glass, Apples” by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Colleen Doran, expected Aug. 20 from Dark Horse Books). 😁

Lindy That reminds me, I have Oliver‘s essays in hardcover and I haven‘t yet read them. Oops. 7mo
