The Man Who Laughs (first published in 1869) is Victor Hugo's scathing indictment of the injustice and inequality within Britain's political system. It is the story of Gwynplaine, the two-year-old heir to a rebel lord, who is abducted upon the orders of a vindictive monarch, and whose face is mutilated into a permanent grisly grin, then abandoned. After years of living in poverty, Gwynplaine is reintroduced to the aristocratic life and resolves to become the voice of the voiceless - whether he is heard or not. Author David Hine and artist Mark Stafford introduce Hugo's classic to a new generation of fans in this graphic-novel adaptation of abduction, mutilation, loss, and prejudice.
