The Graphic Canon of Children’s Literature: The World’s Greatest Kids’ Lit as Comics and Visuals
In this follow-up volume to the lauded Graphic Canon series, master anthologist Russ Kick shows adults everywhere that great children’s literature is great literature, period. And that it’s not just for children.
The original three-volume anthology The Graphic Canon presented the world’s classic literature—from ancient times to the late twentieth century—as eye-popping comics, illustrations, and other visual forms. In this follow-up volume, young people’s literature through the ages is given new life by the best comics artists and illustrators. Fairy tales, fables, fantastical adventures, young adult novels, swashbuckling yarns, your favorite stories from childhood and your teenage years … they’re all here, in all their original complexity and strangeness, before they were censored or sanitized.
So excited to have a piece appearing in this! If you guys haven’t checked out the previous volumes in the series, do - they’re all beautifully done!
