pandp001_covI love Pride and Prejudice. I really do. A lot. I have not read the zombified version of it because I don’t really like zombies, but believe that it could be as  great as the original.  I don’t generally like comic books too much either (though I have really liked many) but I might have to buy the comic book version of P and P, out from Marvel April 1.  The cover alone is funny and enticing.

Here’s the description from the Marvel site:

IT is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife… 
Tailored from the adored Jane Austen classic, Marvel Comics is proud to present PRIDE AND PREJUDICE! Two-time Rita Award-Winner Nancy Butler and fan-favorite Hugo Petrus faithfully adapt the whimsical tale of Lizzy Bennet and her loveable-if-eccentric family, as they navigate through tricky British social circles. Will Lizzy’s father manage to marry off her five daughters, despite his wife’s incessant nagging? And will Lizzy’s beautiful sister Jane marry the handsome, wealthy Mr. Bingley, or will his brooding friend Mr. Darcy stand between their happiness? “This project has been like a dream come true for me as a writer and as a former graphic designer—not only am I adapting a book I love, I am doing it in the one forum, comics, where words and pictures carry equal weight.” Nancy Butler, two-time RITA winner and multiple RT Reviewer’s Choice winner in Regency 

I’m a little confused about the last sentence.  Is that a typo or reference I don’t get?  Anyway, I’m in.
