The Graphic Canon Volume 2: From “Kubla Khan” to the Brontë Sisters to The Picture of Dorian Gray (ON SALE TOMORROW) edited by Russ Kick, gets a rave review in Publishers Weekly!
“Comprising original graphic versions of classic literature, from Coleridge’s “Kubla Khan” to Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, this is the second volume of a must-have anthology for those who wish to lose themselves utterly in visual narrative adaptations of the works of the Western canon.”
“Apart from containing insightful introductions and wonderful artwork, these selections have a not-to-be-underestimated pedagogical value that educators will no doubt find invaluable in bringing classic works of literature to a 21st-century audience immersed in visual culture.”
