I start off all my mornings reading four comics, and the last one I always read is Frank and Ernest. Yesterday’s comic (above) had me scratching my head as I’ve never heard of Dorian Gray. After a little research, I found out he’s a character created by Oscar Wilde back in 1890. Many of you may already know about the story, but it’s something my Mineral Wells and Hardin-Simmons education passed over.
Basically, he’s a handsome guy that sells his soul so that he will never age, but a painting of him will continue to age showing what he would really look like. Knowing that, I found the comic to be pretty clever. That storyline was enough to capture my attention, and after a little research I found that the book can be read for free via Google. Since I don’t want to read all 466 pages, I looked to see if a movie was ever made, and surprisingly one came out last year with Colin Firth. (Apple Movie Trailer) Since I don’t recall any buzz about the movie, I’m guessing it’s not that great, but I might try to hunt it down. Have any of you seen it?
