Disney Cruella: The Manga: Black, White, and Red

We rated this book:


Cruella de Vil didn’t start as a villain. No, she started as a pick- pocketing fashion designer, one who had her own unique sense of style. The manga version of Disney’s live action Cruella gives a glimpse of where she came from and who she was before, but not having seen the move yet, I felt lost. It’s definitely a companion novel rather than a stand alone. The story takes place over several years, skipping her childhood to her adulthood, but its long before the time of 100 and 1 Dalmatians. I enjoyed the characters and getting to know familiar ones, and not so familiar ones, better. The characters are all drawn different and are easily distinguishable from each other in how they look as well as act. The art conveys emotion with facial expressions and posture, so it’s clear what each character is feeling. Overall, it’s still an enjoyable book and makes me want to see the movie all the more.
