I’ve been neck-deep in novel edits these past few weeks, so I missed the day that Comic Buzz posted about Marvel’s new Emma comic, debuting on 3/2/11.
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Emma #1 from New York Times best-selling writer Nancy Butler (Sense & Sensibility) and rising star artist Janet K. Lee (Return of the Dapper Men)! This March, delve into the world of nineteenth century courtship courtesy of a Rita Award-winning author and the illustrator whose work Newsarama.com calls “truly breathtaking.” Local matchmaker Emma Woodhouse can make anyone the perfect pair – provided she can stop the men folk from falling for her first! Find out how one upstanding young woman comes to find herself stuck in a love triangle as big as an English village, only in Emma #1!
I made a screen shot of one of the images to give you a feel for what’s in store..I think .Janet’s gorgeous artwork totally complements the book and gives a great feel for Austen’s work. I will absolutely be in the comic shop that day to pick up issue number one. I’m glad I don’t have to wait much longer!
