Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It is a truth universally acknowledged that the United States is not Japan, and certainly this is no multivolume manga. We don't savor at length Lizzie's inner monologs or hover along through the Regency social dailiness that contextualizes Austen's comedy of matrimony. To be fair, the basic plot is pretty much here, bonsaied down from Austen's 400-plus pages. And Butler does quite a good job at keeping the continuity while letting each major character have a chance in the spotlight. But Austen's women don't come off well—they all have a similar "superhero female character from central casting" look, seeming even to wear lipstick. The muddy coloring doesn't help either, with too many browns and ochres slathered together to scream, "IN THE PAST." (We shouldn't blame Petrus, a capable Spanish artist who perhaps received misleading direction.) VERDICT This P&P packages Austen's classic for fanboys and newbies. Women readers and Austenites are likely to want more story, more appealing art, and more distinctive female characters. For teens and up.—M.C.

    P&P Graphic Novel

    I had heard about Marvel's graphic novel version of Pride and Prejudice on a Jane Austen message board and decided I'd try it out. P&P is my favorite novel so why not. Upon getting the book I instantly delved into reading it and was surprised. Both pleasantly and unpleasantly. The unpleasant part was how comic book it felt. Yes I know Marvel designed it so it's not surprising that it felt like that. It was just odd to see Jane Austen's elegant text put to pictures that sometimes didn't seem to fit. As I was reading I felt like Lizzie's face changed all the time. Not changed like her emotions changed, but that it was a different character. Not sure - it could just be me! The pleasant part about the book was that they stayed fairly true to the original text. Obviously some things had to be cut/shortened but the dialogue is pretty true to Austen's writing. I was exceedingly thrilled about that because honestly Austen was an amazing writer. It's why we still read her books today!

    All in all if you're looking for a fun read and want to revisit P&P but don't have the time to read the whole novel again, pull up a chair and read this version.
