Dorian Gray gets modern makeover in new comic book adaptation

Oscar Wilde'S Dorian Gray is indeed proving to be ageless.

The character has made numerous screen appearances over the past century including, more recently, Stuart Townsend's portrayal in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003), Josh Duhamel in The Picture of Dorian Gray (2005) and Ben Barnes in 2009's Dorian Gray.

Now he's returning to the literary world, but this time in comic book format for a reimagined adaptation by American publisher Bluewater Productions.

Following its success in converting classic titles to hit comics with Quartermain, Sherlock Holmes, Back to Mysterious Island and Juliet, Bluewater has given a modern makeover to Wilde's classic story about the literary world's original bad boy.

Dorian Gray issue 1 is now available. The adaptation was written by Darren G. Davis and Scott Davis (Wrath of the Titans, Blackbeard Legacy). Federico De Luca (John Saul's: God Project) illustrated both the interiors and covers for the title.
