5.0 out of 5 stars Brings a new light to the original, February 11, 2011
This review is from: The Alchemist: A Graphic Novel (Hardcover)
Though the story is slightly different here and there, it stays true to the original tale. The illustration is great and I like the characters. All in all I am pleased and recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the original tale and likes graphic novels.

I didn't like it to well. I think they were trying to teach a lesson.
