"Pieces of Eight! Pieces of Eight!"

  • Mar 24, 2010
This new series of Classics Illustrated gets better and better with the issuance of each new title. As a person who has a complete set of the original Classics Illustrated (including Classic Comics), the complete Marvel Classics Illustrated, and the First (1990s) set of Classics Illustrated, I must admit that, from the point of view of an avid reader, this series may just be the best.

The original Classics were drawn in a lifelike manner, but this series tends to have each book drawn differently, which does give some individuality to each one. Also, the fact that the books are well over 100 pages gives the artists and adaptors the ability to delve much more deeply into the plot of the original work, and reveal nuances that the 48 page Classics Illustrated were never able to do.

I just wish that these books came out on a regular schedule. There's never any set time for the issuance of a new book, so I have to keep alert not to miss any issue. It's a small price to pay for reading excellent adaptations of great literature!
