Preview by Publisher Blurb

The first of two volumes builds on the brilliant and original Graphic Canon series in retelling classic works of literature as comics and other visual forms. Organized thematically, Volume 1 opens with 'The Act' (think In Cold Blood and A Clockwork Orange), followed by sections dedicated to 'Criminals,' Whodunit,' 'Judgment' (Scarlet Letter, anyone?), and 'Punishment.' Here you'll find stunning and suspenseful adaptations starringSherlock Holmes, Auguste Dupin, Hercule Poirot, Father Brown, Mike Hammer, and teenage girl-detective Violet Strange. The artists also bring to life crime stories from the Arabian Nights, the Bible, The Canterbury Tales, China's Song Dynasty, Shakespeare, James Joyce's Dubliners, Patricia Highsmith, Truman Capote, and current writers like Stephen King, Jo Nesbo, and Sara Paretsky.
