Neil Gaiman’s retelling of Snow White is getting an illustrated adaptation from artist Colleen Doran (A Distant Soil, Sandman). Dark Horse’s Snow, Glass, Apples is a 56-page hardcover graphic novel that will be on sale August 7 for an MSRP of $17.99.

Snow, Glass, Apples, which Gaiman originally released as to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and was reprinted in Smoke and Mirrors, turns the tale of Snow White on its head, recasting the fairy tale heroine as a repellent evil that feasts on blood and the queen as the only thing standing between her wicked stepdaughter and the kingdom.

Doran has worked with Gaiman on several projects. In addition to the award-winning Sandaman series, she also adapted Gaiman’s short story “Troll Bridge” (see “'Neil Gaiman's Troll Bridge'”) and contributed to the comic book version of American Gods (see “'American Gods' Gets Comic Adaptation”).
