Two veteran comic creators, Ted Adams and Jorge Coelho, have teamed up to create a colorful visual aesthetic, matched with Fitzgerald’s own timeless words in this new comic book adaptation. Adams has retold the stories of The Island of Doctor Moreau and The Shrinking Man in comic book form and now Gatsby is getting his special treatment.
"Every adaptation has a hurdle to be tackled to keep the story true to the original creation." Adams says, "And Gatsby was no exception."
"Fitzgerald's use of language is what makes The Great Gatstby an American classic. It's a snapshot of the 1920’s." Adams went on, "I thought 'I can't improve on how Fitzgerald wrote,' so I decided not to try."
Adams left Fitzgerald's words untouched. Working with artist Coelho (Loki, Rocket Raccoon), they came up with concepts and art to accompany the story of Nick Carraway, the Buchanans, and Jay Gatsby.
