We've posted in the past about Marvel Comics project of turning Jane's stories in comics, and I've read a few of them and have enjoyed their interpretations. I believe they have done Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, Emma, and Northanger Abbey.
I've enjoyed the art of these books, but it has a kind of classic comic book feel to them. I'm always on the lookout for something different and I found it this weekend.
I came across a booth for Camp Fire Graphic Novels. The first thing that caught my eye was their art. As I browsed their titles I noticed a lot of classic titles on display. Picking up a few and reading some pages, they stick really close the stories. I started to look for one to purchase so I could see just how well they did justice to an original. Then I found it!
I love the cover art and the art throughout is beautiful. I think the artist did a wonderful job in portraying the characters through the images, Mrs. Bennet has a sort of crinkled up face, as if she smells something awful. I think it's the perfect face for her "Mr. Bennet, how can you abuse your own children so? You have no compassion for my poor nerves!" (Just a note through this whole conversation Mr. Bennet doesn't stop in his task of finding a book to read.)
This graphic novel is due out October 29. You can pre-order it from:
