Snow White

By Matt Phelan
Illustrated by Matt Phelan

“Phelan’s noir-esque adaptation of the classic fairy tale is atmospheric, clever, and touching. . . . A stunning, genre-bending graphic novel.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

The curtain rises on New York City. The dazzling lights cast shadows that grow ever darker as the glitzy prosperity of the Roaring Twenties screeches to a halt. Enter a cast of familiar characters: a young girl, Samantha White, returning after being sent away by her cruel stepmother, the Queen of the Follies, years earlier; her father, the King of Wall Street, who survives the stock market crash only to suffer a strange and sudden death; seven street urchins, brave protectors for a girl as pure as snow; and a mysterious stock ticker that holds the stepmother in its thrall, churning out ticker tape imprinted with the wicked words: “Another . . . More Beautiful . . . KILL.”

  • Now in paperback, the New York Times bestselling graphic adaptation of a beloved fairy tale.
  • Rich, atmospheric artwork and cinematic/film noir-inspired storytelling from a three-time Eisner nominee. Brings 1920s and 30s Manhattan—from Zeigfeld Follies and the windows of Macy's to Hooverville—to life with gorgeous art-deco design flourishes.
  • A nice curricula tie-in for units on the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression.
