A Pride and Prejudice comic book?

From Marvel.com:


FIRST LOOK: Pride & Prejudice #1
Get a sneak peek inside the adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel in comic book form

Two-time Rita Award-Winner Nancy Butler and acclaimed artist Hugo Petrus bring PRIDE & PREJUDICE #1 to life—and we've got an exclusive preview for you! Follow the gripping story of Lizzy Bennet and her loveable, yet eccentric, family as they navigate the treacherous waters of British high society, in this faithful adaptation of the seminal Jane Austen novel.

"I've tried to keep the flavor and sly humor of the story, and modernized the language only for better understanding," explains Butler. "Wherever space allowed, I've used Jane Austen's own words. This is your grandmother's PRIDE & PREJUDICE, and your mother's and your own."

David Gabriel, Marvel Senior Vice Pr esident of Sales, adds, "Following in the success of THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ, we're presenting these classic stories by staying as close to the originals as possible while still putting that unique Marvel spin on them. I think Jane Austen fans will be thrilled when they sample Nancy's work."

  1. Comics, oh yeah! I'm a big fan of them!

    While I am not a fan of Pride and Prejudice and Zombie (I still find it ridiculous), I am excited about the Lost in Austen movie!
