Marvel Comics is adapting Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey into a 5 book limited comic book series adapted by Nancy Butler, illustrated by Janet Lee, with a cover design by Julian Totino Tedesco. We love the intensity of heroine in the making Catherine Morland on the cover and hope that the interior images are as equally stunning. Here is a brief preview for your enjoyment.
Lovingly adapted from Jane Austen’s most humorous work, Marvel Comics is proud to present literature lover Catherine Morland’s quest to be the leading lady of her own great romance. Can real life prove the equal of the Gothic novels she finds so enchanting? Can Catherine find true love amid the fictions of others and her own wild imagination? And what dread secrets lie in wait in Northanger Abbey itself? Award-winning author Nancy Butler continues her quest to reinvent Jane Austen’s Regency world in the Mighty Marvel Manner. With exquisite illustrations from Janet Lee, 19th-century England comes alive like never before. Discover – along with Catherine Moreland – that while truth may not be stranger than fiction, it can be no less surprising!
