Which Graphic Novel To Read Next Based On Your Favorite Classic


If you Love: Romeo and Juliet By William Shakespeare

Then you should Read: Saga By Brian K. Vaughan And Fiona Staples

Then you should Read: Monstress By Marjorie Liu And Sana Takeda

About: Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900's Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steam punk, MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both and make them the target of both human and otherworldly powers.


If you Love: 1984 By George Orwell

Then you should Read: Bitch Planet By Kelly Sue DeConnick

About: Eisner Award-nominated writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Pretty Deadly, Captain Marvel) and Valentine De Landro (X-Factor) team up to bring you the premiere volume of Bitch Planet, a deliciously vicious riff on women-in-prison sci-fi exploitation.

In a future just a few years down the road in the wrong direction, a woman's failure to comply with her patriarchal overlords will result in exile to the meanest penal planet in the galaxy. When the newest crop of fresh femmes arrive, can they work together to stay alive or will hidden agendas, crooked guards, and the deadliest sport on (or off!) Earth take them to their maker?

Through the Woods

If you Love: Frankenstein By Mary Shelley

Then you should Read: Through the Woods By Emily Carroll

About: 'It came from the woods. Most strange things do.'

Five mysterious, spine-tingling stories follow journeys into (and out of?) the eerie abyss.

These chilling tales spring from the macabre imagination of acclaimed and award-winning comic creator Emily Carroll.

Come take a walk in the woods and see what awaits you there..


If you Love: Little Women By Louisa May Alcott

Then you should Read: Lumberjanes By Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters, And Brooke Allen

About: Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley are five best pals determined to have an awesome summer together...and they’re not gonna let any insane quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! Not only is it the second title launching in our new BOOM! Box imprint but LUMBERJANES is one of those punk rock, love-everything-about-it stories that appeals to fans of basically all excellent things.
