Author Seth Grahame-Smith launched a phenomenon with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, his super awesome twist on the Jane Austen classic. This man has made it possible to enjoy some of the most boring literature in history. I mean literally I have been soooo bored watching movies based on her awkward British Characters that I have wanted to shoot myself.
These genre twisting treasures give me hope! Yeah zombies! (Grahame-Smith’s follow-up, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, was released this month.)
The Book has been so successfull that in May, Del Rey takes the franchise a step further with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Graphic Novel. The comic adaptation is penned by Tony Lee (love his Doctor Who comics) and illustrated by Cliff Richards (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). I’m pretty impressed with this art work, it’s awesome! They already have my money.
Here’s your first look at the cover and a few pages. Really Really great artwork on this comic.
