Synopsis: "Adapted for the first time from the novel by Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn is a tale for any age about the wonders of magic, the power of love, and the tragedy of loss. The unicorn, alone in her enchanted wood, discovers that she may be the last of her kind. Reluctant at first, she sets out on a journey to find her fellow unicorns, even if it means facing the terrifying anger of the Red Bull and malignant evil of the king who wields his power. Adapted by Peter B. Gillis and illustrated by Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon."

My Review: I have never read the original book, the movie was a favorite as a kid, but I decided to go with the graphic novel edition to have the beautiful artwork to go with it. I really enjoyed it and the artwork is absolutely stunning. I do have to say that I feel like maybe there was some symbolism that may have gotten lost in this version, but again I am not sure since I never read the orginal by Beagle, but I just feel like there is more to the story.
