Today marks the release of Tim Conrad’s Graphic Novel version of Hunchback of Notre Dame. So far it’s gotten mixed reviews but I’ll you be the judge of it that till I get my hands on it and find something the comment on (other than Esmeralda’s red hair).
This scene is from Book 9 Chapter 1 Delirium of the novel where Frollo, in his guilt and growing insanity, finds Esmeralda in Notre Dame and think she is specter.
Curious that Esmeralda’s hair is red in this huh? The only other time I’ve seen her with red has been in certain casts of Notre Dame de Paris and Maureen O’Hara in the 1939 version but that doesn’t really count as it’s a black & white movie.
I’m not sure about the art it’s simplistic and the color are muted. It might work better in context full of the work.
