Peter David’s Artful #1
Writer: Adapted by Nicole D’Andria from the Peter David novel

Artist Name: Laura Neubert
Cover Artist(s): Laura Neubert, Brian Hess

Award winning author and comics legend, Peter David, brings the adaptation of his novel, Artful, to Action Lab! Artful is the dark, funny, and action-packed story of one of the most fascinating characters in literary history, the Artful Dodger from the classic Oliver Twist, this time with a twist: Vampires.

What people are saying about Peter David’s novel Artful:

“This novel had movement from the first page and doesn’t stop until the end. Coupled with the movement, is spectacular character development and scene transitions. Really superbly crafted.” (Koeur’s Book Reviews)

“If you are a fan of Dickens, or grew up singing the score from Oliver!, or just have a fondness for vampyres and valiant streetsmart heroes saving imperiled princesses in Victorian London, then this is the book for you.” (A Bibliophile’s Reverie)

“All in all, this is a darkly humorous romp through the streets of pre-Victorian London, wittily narrated—with tongue firmly in cheek—by a skilled writer who has a great deal of fun with the story.” (Fang-tastic Fiction)
