  8. Uhh, I think I am a little weirded out here. :) Never imagined Marvel and Jan Austen in the same conversation before. Like looking at this image though. Something re-imagined as I would never re-imagine it. Intriguing.

  13. Fabulous teaser, JoAnn! A visual one for a change is such a great idea.
    I am tempted to buy this for my boyfriend but I think he may prefer to re-watch the BBC adaptation with me instead!

  15. Is is any better as a graphic novel? My teaser is from Brideshead Revisited.

  16. I own all of these..loved them!

  18. Say it isn't so....first those zombies and now this. Really, it's too much...where are my smelling salts?

  19. Jess - Jane Austen graphic - who would have thought!

    Stephanie - My book club meets Friday to discuss Nine Parts, so I'll post after that.

    Kaye - I definitely like the 'real' Jane better, but this was too good to pass up.

    Lisa - This would be perfect for a HS library!!

    Amy - It's interesting to see how Austen translates to the graphic form.

    Andrea - It's definitely worth a look.

    jlshall - It's not a replacement for Jane, but is an interesting take on the novel.

    Frances - That was my feeling, too. Jane Austen and Marvel in the same sentence seems incredible!! The images aren't as pleasing to my eye as the other few graphic novels I've read.

    Book Dilettante - If you like classics, this might be a good graphic novel to start with.

  20. Kals - This might be the perfect graphic novel for an Austen fan to start with.

    Jennifer - thanks

    Susan B. Evans - I was surprised to learn that there are many classics that have been made into graphic novels.

    Stacybuckeye - My 19 yr.old daughter was laughing out loud at this!

    Paperback Reader - I'm sure your boyfriend would prefer to watch the BBC movie with you, but the graphic novel might still be fun.

    Dar - It's fun, but not a replacement for the real thing!

    Pusserboots - P&P is my all-time favorite, so the graphic is definitely not better than the novel for me :-)

    Staci - You get the credit (blame?) for this purchase. I first saw these on your blog!

    Laurel-Rain Snow - Definitely a different take on an old favorite..

    Darlene - LOL! I'm afraid it's so... the graphic novel is one thing, but I draw the line at zombies.

  21. It's so funny that you posted this. I just ordered this today from Amazon. How ironic! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Becky - That's too funny! Hope you enjoy it... this is a whole new way to look at P&P.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like the art! Will definitely keep this one in mind.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ooh, as a P&P fan I don't know if I'm going to like this. The drawings look too modern!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nymeth - This is my first 'classic' as a graphic novel.

    Mrs. B. - The drawings are very modern... just look at those Bennet sisters - lol! This was interesting, but it'll never replace the real thing.

  26. i've never read a graphic novel. This might be a god one to start with

    ReplyDelete
  27. Bookmagic - I've only read a few graphic novels and although P&P is my favorite book, this (surprisingly) is not my favorite graphic novel! That's still Ethel & Ernest by Raymond Briggs, author of the children's book The Snowman.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh my. Now this I have not heard of! Jane Austen meets graphic novels- it had to happen sooner or later!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Marie - You knew it was only a matter of time, LOL!
