On one hand, you have people reading and being exposed to a classic book that they might never otherwise pick up.
On the other hand, they're reading a graphic novel and not the book as it was intended to be read. You're transforming a classic book into a graphic novel! A graphic novel! A graphic novel!
Uh, if you want you can pre-order here. Then, please, borrow it to me so I can draw my final conclusion.
Pride and Prejudice isn't your cup of tea? You happen to worship Jane Eyre?
You can get that here. Then, you too, could read about Jane and how she's such a sucker for taking her fiancée back even though he had that pyromaniac wife that tried to kill her and he forgot to mention that they couldn't get married because he did have a secret crazy pyromaniac wife locked in the attic. Not that I have strong, angry feelings about this book or anything.
And is it just me or does the cover look like a movie poster for Gone With the Wind? Only Jane's dude is considerably less attractive than my literary boyfriend Rhett.
There's just something about this one that I find hilarious. The trademark free Superman and Wonder Woman? Or that there is a VH1 show about Where-are-they-now-child-stars (which I think is all VH1 is allowed to play) and some ex-child star does a video series as an evangelizing superhero. [If you know who I'm vaguely describing, please tell. It's driving me crazy!]
And don't get me wrong. I don't disapprove of all graphic novels. Some actually sound amazing.
|I was hoping for something a little trippier, though.|
|It can't be any more traumatic than reading the original, right?|
And it's from the peeps that brought us Spark Notes.
