If I hadn't seen it with my own stunned eyes, held it in my hands and flipped through the pages in awe, I'm not sure I would've believed it...but thanks to the absolutely wonderful Pamela Cayne, I now know there's a comic book in existence that I LOVE.
After decades of never quite getting the allure of the comic-book world, I'm a changed woman. (Cue the chorus of "Hallelujah!" and "Amen, Sister!") The cover on the left shows the first in a five-part limited-edition series that Marvel Comics just released last month on--you guessed it--Pride & Prejudice. Next Wednesday, part two comes out--and, yes, I already have my calendar marked for a field trip to the comic-book store!! Part one has garnered the adoration of fans old and new. Take a look at this article snippet:
Critics agree that Marvel's adaptation of Jane Austen's PRIDE & PREJUDICE is a smash hit and has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level)! Two-time Rita Award-Winner Nancy Butler and acclaimed artist Hugo Petrus present this groundbreaking love story in a way you have never seen before! A passionate story of a strong woman looking for true love, Marvel truly brings this tale of romance and betrayal to life in a manner that any comic book fan will enjoy.
Yeah. Life is good :-).
