Like any David Fincher fan, I enjoyed the movie adaption of this short story. And like any over extended/super busy reader I was curious about the original story. Luckily, someone adapted the short story into a very nice graphic novel, saving me from all of F. Scott Fitzgerald's extra words.

The art is great, very muted and subtle and a lot of the narrative seems to be pulled straight from the source material or slightly altered. If you are at all interested, I suggest checking out the short story or this graphic novel re-telling. Fitzgerald's story differs greatly from the film and I personally enjoyed the more societal reaction/focus of Fitzgerald's telling than the film's personal journey/love story approach.
