Pride and Prejudice: graphic novel

by Nancy Butler and Jane Austen Illustrated by Hugo Petrus        120 p.

           When I found we had comic book versions of Jane Austen's works I had to check them out. It was okay, but as Austen is such a psychological-social writer it loses a lot in mostly pictures. However it could be a nice introduction to Jane Austen for younger readers. I also thought despite being in Georgian style clothes the Bennet sisters look very modern with their haircuts and lots of makeup.
