Christmas has come early."

‘Tis the season! Starting today, December 17th, Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost, the Eisner Award winning graphic novel adaptation of Charles Dickens’s beloved classic A Christmas Carol is now $.99 – deeply discounted from its original price of $6.99 – for a limited time on comiXology & Kindle!
In the 1950s, legendary comics creator Harvey Kurtzman had plans to adapt Charles Dickens’s classic story A Christmas Carol into what would become known as a graphic novel. However, the project was never brought to fruition and the pages, thumbnails, and notes that Kurtzman had created remained unfinished. Artist Gideon Kendall and writers Josh O’Neill and Shannon Wheeler– under the supervision of the Kurtzman Estate and book packagers Kitchen, Lind & Associates – teamed up to finish Kurtzman’s dream project for comiXology Originals. Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost adapts and expands upon Kurtzman’s extensive breakdowns and notes to make his long-lost vision a reality.
Earlier this year Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost won “Best Digital Comic” at the prestigious Eisner Award 2018 Ceremony during Comic-Con International San Diego.
Based on Harvey Kurtzman’s unfinished work, Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost is part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content only available on comiXology and Kindle. This title is now available for $.99 and free to read for members of comiXology Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading.
