Pride & Prejudice turns 200

Cover of Pride & Prejudice the graphic novel

P&P gets the Marvel Comics treatment in a graphic novel, with illustrations by Hugo Petrus.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that 200 years ago this week, on January 28, 1813, Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen was published. (Although it was published anonymously, sold only as “by the Author of Sense and Sensibility.”)

This book’s classic themes have stood the test of time, spawning literary take-offs from Bridget Jones’s Diary to Pride & Prejudice & Zombies to PD James’ murder mystery, Death Comes to Pemberley.

For even more books inspired by Austen’s tale, see this list from Goodreads.
