[quote=""Hunter""]The art is not bad, but the second preview image with the Bennet girls at the top is pretty hilarious. They all look like current sexpots.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I wonder what the production cost of something like that is? Is the entire full-length version going to be illustrated?

I think its just a normal comic, right? So I am guessing that its about 20-23 pages of story. It depends on how much they paid for the writer/penciller/colorist.

Not sure what the going rate on a book is but I'm guessing that since these guys are top notch they should be getting more than 100 bucks per page. That doesnt include print costs though.

Of course they maybe doing these to use in schools. Thats always a possibility. The push for graphic novels in schools is pretty big right now. Maybe they can get some money that way?

[quote=""Leo62""]Just in case you thought you did...

There's also a Jane Austen Tarot :D

I can see Miss Crawford and the Bertram girls using that product. In fact I think that's Mary in the red dress.

Upon further reflection I believe the woman in scarlet is Miss Thorpe. :D

Yes, that's what I thought Nona. Actually I'd probably be more like to read this than ye actual Jane Austen! :eek: :cool:

This is great! It reminds me of the Classic Comics which we used to devour as kids back in the last century :) They were considered very cool back in those more innocent days, and it meant that you already know the basic storyline of, say, "Ivanhoe" before tackling the real thing.

And, how interesting-Classic Comics still appear to be currently running.
