78 page graphic novel (E). Tom Bouden has turned Oscar Wilde’s best known play into a graphic novel, only this one is set in the present day, and deals with four gentlemen rather then two men and two women. Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff both have secret "siblings" that no one really knows the truth of. Whenever Jack decides to head into town, he tells everyone that he's visiting his "wicked brother Ernest", and upon arriving goes under the identity of Ernest. Algernon, likewise, often escapes his social engagements by going to visit his "sick friend Bunbury". When Jack decides it's time to propose to Algernon's cousin Glenn, however, it sets in motion a series of misidentifications and engagements that takes quite some time to finish unraveling...

Entertaining re-telling of a classic, but. . .
While this was fun to read, and I'm sure Oscar Wilde would have found it amusing, I was disappointed by the grammar and spelling errors throughout the text. I realize that Mr. Bouden is from Belgium, but this would have been a stronger effort if it had been carefully proofread. I still enjoyed it, and I would recommend it.
What a wonderful reinterpretation of this Wilde classic. I cannot recommend highly enough. A joy to read...thank you Mr. Bouden.
