As usual, Nancy Butler does a wonderful job condensing Austen's material down to graphic novel form. The artwork is nice but at times I had trouble following the flow of the panels. Overall, an excellent addition to Marvel's Classic series. ( )

The story is of course itself and has much to recommend it. The illustrations were a far cry from that promised by the cover. Lack of continuity was a constant enough problem to become a distraction. A good way to introduce the classics to younger generations though. ( )

Abbey is one of Austen's more satirical novels, and I have to admit, after I read it I wasn't a huge fan. It just seemed so silly-like the drama was heightened. After some research, I found Austen meant it to be that way. Reading Butler's adaptation gave me a new appreciation for the story, and the lead characters, Catharine and Henry. Butler does a wonderful job if summarizing Austen's novel and including memorable quotes and scenes from the original.

These versions are excellent for teens, or someone who is looking to get a light version of what the book is about. It's really summed up nicely, and even as an Austen fan, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the little details she provides. Lee's illustration style is fantastic too. I love the angular quality of the characters and the bold lines. Note that the cover art is nothing like the artwork throughout the comic, but both are beautifully done. ( )
