Team Bennet Struts the Runway in the new Pride and Prejudice Comic Book

Marvel Comics have given us a sneak peek at five pages from the new comic adaptation of Pride and Prejudice which includes this portrait of the five Bennet daughters. They are so pretty they could pass for supermodels; even Mary Bennet who is not a looker in the original novel but appears to of had quite a makeover! I had a good laugh at this glamification since Jane Austen only described Jane Bennet as a real beauty. Check it out and give us your decided opinion! Don’t miss out on Marvel’s subscription offer of all five of the Pride and Prejudice comics adapted by Nancy Butler and illustrated by Hugo Petrus for a limited time until March 9th. It should be great fun to see our favorite novel transformed into graphic format.

Cheers, Laurel Ann, Austenprose

The black lips look quite Gothic. Kitty is a redhead. Seems Lydia should be. ;-)

I'm afraid the comic book genre by definition is 'exaggerated everything', offering visual rather than literary stimulations. I guess P & P the comic version is luring anime fans rather than catering to Janeites and book lovers.

They all look like they are ready for a rumble or at least "clobberin' time" As I have said before, if it gets people interested in the novels, it is O.K. with me...I draw the line at the idea of Elizabeth, Darcy and company fighting off Zombies though !!!
