About this title


"So – for God's sake – don't say anything to the inspector."

A respectable household is shocked when a strange police inspector visits them shortly after dinner... and proceeds to unravel their prejudices and lies. Through this almost surreal murder-mystery, Priestley interweaves social comment with a gripping story that twists and turns every few pages.

True to the original vision of the author and featuring beautiful engaging artwork, the book features the entire play, unabridged (in the original British English), as well as an illustrated Character List (Dramatis Personae), 132 pages of story artwork, and fascinating support material that details the life and work of J.B. Priestley - all beautifully presented in color.

An alternative text edition with simplified US dialogue is also available enabling differentiation in the classroom.

From the Back Cover:

On a spring evening in 1912, in the English town of Brumley, the wealthy Birling family is celebrating the engagement of their daughter Sheila to Gerald Croft, son of Sir George and Lady Croft. It is a joyous occasion, but their pleasant party takes a turn for the worse when they receive an unexpected visit from a police inspector investigating the suicide of a young woman. Surely none of these respectable people could have anything to do with her sad fate
or could they?

J. B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls is a masterpiece of English drama. Written toward the end of World War II, it cleverly combines an intriguing plot line with insightful social commentary and superb characterization, resulting in a truly thought-provoking piece of theater.

Featuring the entire original script, this full color graphic novel of Priestley’s wonderful drama will give you a reading experience that will live with you forever.
