Marvel comics pride and prejudice
Pride & Prejudice by Nancy Butler3.5 stars
If youre already a fan of the book (and you enjoy graphic novels), then this will probably appeal to you. It would also be great for people who dont want to read the book, but do want the condensed version of the story. Because lets face it, there are references to Pride and Prejudice everywhere.
The great thing about this is, Butler stuck with Austins version of P&P, and she gave us all of the favorite scenes and quotes from the book. The bad thing about that is, I dont think it will make younger (or reluctant) readers want to read this. I dont blame Butler, though, because this was a no-win situation for her. Having said that, I wouldnt recommend buying this as a Christmas present for that special teenage boy in your family. At least, not if you want them to say, Thanks! Thats just what I was hoping for!. Then again, you may be one of those people who enjoy watching kids faces contort into that look of utter disappointment when they open your gift. Whatever, its your call.
My biggest complaint would have to be the artwork. Its just not that great. Im not saying it looks like a child drew it with their crayons, but I would have liked to see something a little more visually spectacular. I mean, its Pride and Prejudice! Give me something gorgeous and glossy, for Gods sake!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, marvel
Just because it is year old romantic literature doesn't mean it can't be represented in a graphic novel. Recently, Marvel Comics put out several graphic novels with stories that don't have superheroes. At least not in the traditional sense. They also put out some The Wizard of Oz books , for those of you playing along at home. I was so excited when I saw these that I bought them for myself for Christmas. Naturally, this kind of format can't delve as deeply into the story as the original books, or even the many movie adaptations, but they are long enough to capture the storyline and the characters.

I do love Colin Firth as Mr. The first, a release from a line called Marvel Adaptations , is real bad. The inside makes all the women look like s TV stars with contouring and brows and glossy lipstick. Darcy dislike each other are super vague, which makes the whole book nonsensical. The next adaptation, a version from Campfire Graphic Novels published in , is way better! The art by Rajesh Nagulakonda is much better, creative and pleasant to look at, more interested in mood and color and conveying a scene. Again, the cover artist is different.
