Summary

The classic novel brought to life in full color! This graphic novel breathes new life into the legendary barber who "polished 'em off." No one knows for sure if Sweeney Todd actually existed, but this story, taken from a serialization in a weekly magazine from 1846, was the first time the terrible crimes committed by the Demon Barber of Fleet Street appeared in print for the public to read. Gory? No! What's particularly good about this adaptation is that all of the horror is implied and "off-camera", making this a truly wonderful version of a brilliant story.

Excerpts

TODD
Well, gentlemen, shaved, or cut, or dressed, I am at your service; which shall I begin with?

Colonel
It's rather a remarkable circumstance, but this is a very sagacious dog, you see, and he belongs to a friend of ours, who has most unaccountably disappeared.

TODD
Has he, really?
Tobias! – Run to Mr. Philip's, in Cateaton-street, and get me six-penny-worth of preserved figs.

Captain
Has anyone with the appearance of an officer in the navy came to your house?

TODD
Oh! to be sure, he came here, and I shaved him and polished him off.
