Percy Shelley is mostly remembered as the husband of Mary Shelley. I knew he also was a poet, but much more I didn’t know. This graphic novels tells his story as he is expelled from Oxford and pisses off many people in the pursuit of his dreams.
I don’t know how accurate this story is, but I felt most sorry for his first wife, Harriet. Percy didn’t came across as a likeable character. The art is rather cartoonish and not really my style. I’m however curious to find out more and would probably read the second part in this series.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
