Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Graphic Novel. Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith; adapted by Tony Lee; illustrated by Cliff Richards.
I’m clearly no comic snob. Graphic novels can be just as well-made as proper novels, and graphic novels that are just proper novels illustrated are inherently good. I won’t say “literary” per se, as it is, well, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but the graphic novel version, in addition to being a quick read, is just as entertaining. And look how icky! (In my book that’s usually a compliment.) For someone who never read Jane Austen as a girl (and now cannot) I am fully behind the zombiefication. Actually, there’s a plain graphic novel version of Pride and Prejudice, too; it’s also a quick read, and more entertaining, I think. I’m just not romantic enough for Jane Austen when it’s straight-up. But illustrate it? Add zombies? I’m there.
