We loved the cover of Marvel Comics Northanger Abbey #1. Catherine Morland looks intense and Gothic.
Northanger Abbey #2 was just released on December 14th, 2011. We are a bit puzzled by the artists new direction.
Our first impression was that Henry Tilney and Catherine Morland had morphed into Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello from the Beach Blanket movies! I have seen Austen’s characters dressed in unusual and non-period attire before, but never with a bouffant 1960’s hairdo. Even the Sense and Sensibility from 1971 does not rival this audacity.
This new comic book series is brought to you by Adapter: Nancy Butler, Penciller: Janet Lee, Penciller (cover): Julian Totino Tedesco, Colorist: Nick Filardi, Letterer: Jeff Eckleberry, Editor: Sana Amanat.
One wonders out loud, if this is a wild fluke or intentional???
