Do you have a hard time wrapping your mind around classic novels? For your enjoyment (and supplemental education), we own a number of classic novels in graphic novel form! Although I wouldn't recommend replacing your required reading of these novels with the graphic adaptations (sad, I know), it may help as supplemental reading. I also recommend these for those who are in need of a refresher of said classics.
Listed below are a few highlights of what we own. Click here  for more classic novels in graphic form.
Edgar Allen Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher and other Tales of Terror . Richard Corben illustrates the Gothic poet's tales filled with dark and metaphorical themes.
F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby . This Jazz-infused love story is uniquely illustrated with Nicki Greenberg's non-human characters that add an entertaining and comical twist to the great novel.
Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis . Peter Kuper's depiction of this disturbing classic is sure to entertain readers who enjoy dark tales and eery plots. This novel is about a man who is human one day and an insect the next.
William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream . Part of the Manga Shakespeare series , Kate Brown brings another personalized and entertaining interpretation of "meddling fairies" and "love triangles among a group of teenagers."
Herman Melville's Moby Dick . Fans of nautical adventures will love Roy Thomas' graphic representation of Moby Dick. This is about a man out on sea and is on the brink of insanity, or so he thinks. It is a great book for anyone who has ever contemplated their purpose and other philosphical topics.
Are there other classics you enjoy and would like to see adapted as a graphic novel? Feel free to share your thoughts!
