Two-time Rita Award-Winner Nancy Butler and acclaimed artist Hugo Petrus bring PRIDE & PREJUDICE #1 to life—and we've got an exclusive preview for you! Follow the gripping story of Lizzy Bennet and her loveable, yet eccentric, family as they navigate the treacherous waters of British high society, in this faithful adaptation of the seminal Jane Austen novel. "I've tried to keep the flavor and sly humor of the story, and modernized the language only for better understanding," explains Butler. "Wherever space allowed, I've used Jane Austen's own words. This is your grandmother's PRIDE & PREJUDICE, and your mother's and your own." David Gabriel, Marvel Senior Vice President of Sales, adds, "Following in the success of THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ, we're presenting these classic stories by staying as close to the originals as possible while still putting that unique Marvel spin on them.

If the inside artwork had in any way resembeled the cover art I *might* have been interested. The women are too shiny, almost sexualized. They look like they are barbie dolls playing dress up, posed and unnatural. Maybe it was just meant for a much younger audience. If I see it in the store I'll give it another look hopefully I'll like it more in print.I appreciate the effort though and hope they'll keep putting out more comics in the historical fiction genre.

I've read it now, and I must say, neat! I'm a big Jane Austen fan, and also a big Marvel fan, so the intersection of the two is quite interesting. I think Butler did an excellent job at keeping as much of Austen's dialogue as possible... And as for the art, I'm most impressed by the colors! Bravo to Alejandro Torres!
