Comments: London 1834 is where this story takes place.
The art is rather plain looking. It is almost cartoonish. Plus it simple and lacking detail.
This take on the Oliver Twist is done a little differently.
Jack Dawkins or the Artful Dodger is our star and he is a spirited character.
The Dodger and the girl he saves are both looking good illustrated for the time period. The characters in the comic are written talking in the language style of the time. It is fun to read the language and imagine them actually speaking that way.
Dodger is a street kid who does what he has to to survive. He also cares about others and is willing to help. So he has a big heart.
