The year is 1812. A young orphan, who calls himself Pip, is kneeling beside the grave of his dead family. Shivering in the cold winter air and crying over the passing of his relatives, he is completely unaware that something is about to happen that will change his life for ever.
Dickens first wrote this intriguing novel to appear as weekly parts in the Victorian magazine All the Year Round from December 1860 until August 1861. It was first published as a book in three volumes that same year, and then as a single-volume edition in November 1862. Written at a difficult time in Dickens's life, many consider Great Expectations to be his finest work; and this graphic novel has been painstakingly produced to do justice to this wonderful story.
