The scene: New York City. The dazzling lights cast shadows that grow ever darker as the glitzy prosperity of the Roaring Twenties screeches to a halt. Enter a cast of familiar characters: a young girl, Samantha White, returning after being sent away by her cruel stepmother, the Queen of the Follies, years earlier; her father, the King of Wall Street, who survives the stock market crash only to suffer a strange and sudden death; seven street urchins, brave protectors for a girl as pure as snow; and a mysterious stock ticker that holds the stepmother in its thrall, churning out ticker tape imprinted with the wicked words "Another . . .

A stunningly beautiful adaptation of Snow White, Phelan blends a (mostly) monochromatic palette with sparse dialogue and beautiful wordless scenes, effectively conveying the emotions and atmosphere of the story. The chapter titles, rather than being intrusive, added a subtle exposition, and even though Snow didn't know the seven for very long, the affection they all felt for each other was clear in their actions and facial expressions. The ticker tape mirror was a great touch, and even the scene where the stepmother is electrocuted is gorgeous. ( )

The noir- like illustrations and limited text present a compelling story of Snow White set in New York City during the Great Depression. Snow’s adventures with Queen of the Follies and the Seven of Hooverville will prompt discussions and inquiries.

graphic novel (ages kids and up). Snow White retold in a 1920s New York setting (the dwarves are street kids!), with sparse text (read it in 15-20 minutes) and great illustrations. ( )

This is an imaginative retelling of the classic fairy tale, set in 1930s New York City. In the throes of the Great Depression, Samantha White fights for her very life against a stepmother from hell.

Samantha is an heiress whose mother nicknamed her Snow White. But her mother died when she was young and her father, a lonely Wall-street genius, succumbed to the charms of a Ziegfeld Follies star with ruthless ambition. Snow is sent off to boarding school, returning to New York only after her father has died. But Stepmom is enraged to discover that her husband changed his will, leaving virtually everything to his daughter, unless the daughter dies before she reaches maturity. Stepmom knows that can be arranged….

This is a much darker story than Phelan’s other graphic works, and his illustrations are suitably black-and-white rather than in color. They give a dark, sinister, bleak feel to the whole work.

I did love how Phelan wove in some history of the Great Depression and the Hooverville communities. Using a gang of orphaned kids as “The Seven” was a great idea.

Of course, it’s a fairy tale, and as in the original, there will be a handsome prince to wake the drugged Snow White. The last four pages are rendered in muted pastels, which support the happy ending we crave. Still, I didn’t like it much. Perhaps the current situation in our country is bleak enough without another dark experience in my reading life. ( )
