Enjoy this new version of Dickens' A Christmas Carol in graphic novel form - Harvey Kurtzman's Marley's Ghost.

Marley's Ghost is the posthumous completion of legendary creator Harvey Kurtzman's adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens' novel—A Christmas Carol. Kurztman's ambitious concept for Marley's Ghost began in the 1950s—as an early "graphic novel"—but was never realized. Now, over 60 years later, writers Josh O'Neill and Shannon Wheeler expand upon Kurtzman's extensive adaptation notes while illustrator Gideon Kendall's outstanding artwork utilizes Kurtzman's breakdowns and stylistic choices to make this long-lost vision a reality!

Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) was the creator of MAD, Playboy's Little Annie Fanny and TRUMP, and Help Magazine. He is considered one of the most influential creators in the history of sequential art with the industry's Harvey Awards named in his honor.

Gideon Kendall is an illustrator and animation designer whose clients include Disney, Cartoon Network, and The New York Times. Marley's Ghost is his first full-length graphic novel.

Josh O'Neill is the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning writer and editor of Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream. Shannon Wheeler is the Eisner Award-winning creator of the comic Too Much Coffee Man and a contributor to The New Yorker.

"As a stylist, as an illustrator, as an innovator of layout, as a storyteller, he made everything that came before inadequate—and everything after transformative." —Anthony Bourdain on Harvey Kurtzman

"Kurtzman was a God!" —Terry Gilliam
