Classics Illustrated

In their first ever comics feature, At Length magazine presents five literary classics, as interpreted by five contemporary cartoonists.  Kevin Cannon hops on the idea of fitting everything in the screen of a smartphone.  Pascal Girard struggles with the whole assignment, as does Melissa Mendes (but she does end up doing a pretty good job).  Andrea Tsurumi digs up an obscure (to me at least) novel from  the 1830’s, and Noah Van Sciver takes a stab at an equally obscure (idem) book from a couple of years ago.  And lo and behold, almost all of them got me really wanting to read the books they presented.  job done !
