78 page graphic novel (E). Tom Bouden has turned Oscar Wilde’s best known play into a graphic novel, only this one is set in the present day, and deals with four gentlemen rather then two men and two women. Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff both have secret "siblings" that no one really knows the truth of. Whenever Jack decides to head into town, he tells everyone that he's visiting his "wicked brother Ernest", and upon arriving goes under the identity of Ernest. Algernon, likewise, often escapes his social engagements by going to visit his "sick friend Bunbury". When Jack decides it's time to propose to Algernon's cousin Glenn, however, it sets in motion a series of misidentifications and engagements that takes quite some time to finish unraveling...
