The artwork of pencil and charcoal, illuminated with pastels, shifts a little in tone and vision due to the several years Auladell spent drawing it, but this version remains thoroughly satisfying...

Synopsis

One of the oldest and most powerful stories of all time―God and Satan, Adam and Eve―retold in stunning graphic novel form by the dark and beautiful imagery of Pablo Auladell.

Milton’s epic poem charts humanity’s fall from grace and the origin of the struggle between God and Satan, good and evil, life and death. In the aftermath of the Angels’ devastating defeat in the war for Heaven, Satan determines to seek his revenge. Meanwhile, Adam and Eve have newly awakened in the Garden of Eden . . .

First published nearly three hundred and fifty years ago, Paradise Lost has now been reimagined by the Spanish artist Pablo Auladell. His astonishing artwork portrays the complexity and tragedy of one of the great stories of all time. His bleak and surprising imagery captures the lyricism of Milton’s original for a new audience―and is a masterful tribute to a literary classic.
