The Literary Canon as Graphic Novel

by . Posted on Flavorpill - Thursday Sept 27, 2012

Earlier in the year, we shared some of our favorite selections from the first volume of one of the coolest publishing projects we’ve heard about in a long time — The Graphic Canon, wherein almost 200 classic works of literature will be re-interpreted and published in graphic form by 130-odd visual artists over 1,344 pages in three volumes. Whew. The second installment, The Graphic Canon, Vol. 2: From “Kubla Khan” to the Brontë Sisters to The Picture of Dorian Gray, edited by Russ Kick, hits shelves next week, but we’re lucky enough to have a little preview to whet your appetite. Click through to check out a few standouts from the second volume of this amazing series, and then be sure to pick up a copy of the book for much more.

From Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, art/adaptation by Huxley King with Terrence Boyce. From The Graphic Canon Vol. 2, edited by Russ Kick.
