Classic Literature Turned Into Comic Books

If we'd had these at school, we'd have studied a lot harder.

These superb Classical Comics take legendary novels and plays and convert them into comic books; either using original or simplified texts. While Shakespearean language can often take a little decoding, these books help the reader visualise exactly what's going on. In addition, they're fantastic to look at.

There's 15 in the series so far, taking in classic texts such as Macbeth (which, for example, clocks in at an impressive 150 pages), An Inspector Calls, FrankensteinA Christmas Carol and many more - they retail at £9.99 each from the Classical Comics website.

We have one example page from fourteen titles below - delve into them without delay.
