My sweet husband recently bought me the hardbound edition of Marvel Comic’s Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. It is so fun. I own the Marvel ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and it appears some critics didn’t like the way the Bennet sisters were drawn. I didn’t mind it, but seriously they were some hotties.
But those critics won’t have the same problem with the sweet style of Sense and Sensibility. The drawings have a different style, and it lends a real charm to the book, which despite it’s condensed nature, is pretty accurate to the story line of the book.
This book is on ‘The List’ for the Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge, which I will tell you about soon (but if you can’t wait for me to post about it, click on the gorgeous link button on my sidebar!).
PS. My husband FINALLY joined me on my weekly trip to the sushi bar today. However, the guy on the other side of him was totally DISSING Jane Austen!!!! Are you kidding me? He was reading Pride and Prejudice for the first time and said the women were ‘overdramatic and catty’. I honestly don’t think he’s really reading it. I mean, sure Mrs. Bennet may be over the top, but that’s her character! That guy almost ended up with his face in the wasabi jar!
PSS. I finally broke down and got reading glasses. Small print was causing me a lot of eye strain lately, especially reading the scriptures. SOOooooo, I got some magnifiers. I figured glasses were better than wrinkles :)
