Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kat Kan
Lucent Books has taken graphic novel adaptations of classics originally published in the U.K. by Classical Comics, and provided their own adaptations for American readers. Macbeth: The Graphic Novel presents the entire play, scene-for-scene. All the dialog is included, written in simpler, Americanized English. The art, uncredited in this edition, resembles old Marvel Comics adaptations. Frankenstein: The Graphic Novel uses art (again, uncredited in this edition) to provide the descriptions written out in the original novel by Shelley. The monster in this adaptation is not totally horrible in appearance and looks nothing like the monsters in the various motion picture adaptations. The monster's dialog has a distinctive font, making it easy to follow the conversations in the panels. In both books, vocabulary and sentence structure have been simplified for reluctant and struggling readers, who may find the language and the format less intimidating than other graphic adaptations. The titles in the Classic Graphic Novel Collection cover more detail than other graphic novel adaptations, and include all major action and dialog from the original texts. All of the books are suitable for use in middle and high schools. Reviewer: Kat Kan
VOYA - Joshua Kan
Macbeth: The Graphic Novel is a pretty good adaptation of Shakespeare's classic play. The book shows us how the characters would act in an almost-completely accurate way. Also, the format helps readers who are new to the story get an idea of what is happening and allows them to enjoy it. Frankenstein: The Graphic Novel is a pretty good visual adaptation of Mary Shelley's novel. It misses a few minor details from the original book, but besides that, it tells the story perfectly. If a middle schooler or high schooler had to read Frankenstein for an assignment, this adaptation would help him or her understand it better. Reviewer: Joshua Kan, Teen Reviewer
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—These graphic interpretations of literary classics have been republished as "English Language Teaching Readers." These extensively edited versions remain true to the originals to the extent possible, both in terms of using actual snippets from the author's original texts as well as preserving the overarching themes. The entire stories are told through speech balloons rather than through a running narration. Particularly with Shakespeare's plays, this format offers readers an experience closer to a theatrical performance than a prose condensation of the plot. Most acts and scenes are included, although heavily edited. The same care and attention to detail that was evident in the original series is presented here. Excellent graphics bring the stories to life and set the mood. Lush art in jewel tones heightens interest. All of the titles are replete with support materials beginning with an illustrated cast of characters and an introduction or plot summary and concluding with back matter such as an author biography and historical background. Macbeth in particular includes a wealth of additional resources such as a main-character summary, family tree, link map of characters, and a listing of famous quotations. Most useful in a classroom setting, these volumes could serve as introductions to literary classics as well as companion volumes for students benefiting from a modified text.—Barbara M. Moon, Suffolk Cooperative Library System, Bellport, NY
