A lot of stuff lately makes me think "Wha?" But really, this pegs the meter.

"Text is abridged, so reading these isn't tedious torture."

Honestly, I first read Crime and Punishment as a Golden Key comic when I was home sick with pneumonia. It was interesting enough that I got it at the library when I was well again.

Maybe it's like sampling the gelato.

Classic Comics for the 21st century.
I say, anything to draw 'em in. You know a certain (too large) percent of students won't let themselves get past the first page of the original. When our high school class was supposed to study Julius Caesar the teacher also showed the movie...which was greatly abridged. As I recall, some of my classmates, who would not otherwise have read it, got sucked into it and went on to read more Shakespeare on their own. That was also the year of Franco Zeferelli's Romeo and Juliet...an inspiration to untold numbers of romantic 15 year old (and older) girls. My niece discovered it when she was 20 and went on to read and watch much more.

I second this. I'd also like to see them do it for the Bible.

Really? I try to read the New Testament one year and the parts of the Old that don't send me into stupification the next and then take a year off.

I like the big heavy volume, and contrary to some popular belief, I have never burst into flame.

Oh, Leonard Whiting. Four times in an afternoon, I watched it at the Milford theater. I was there forever. Nevermind Michael York.
