The Classic brought to life in full colour - using Dickens' wonderfully original words!
'I never saw my father or my mother,
and never saw any likeness of either of them'.
No classical collection would be complete without at least one Dickens title; so Classical Comics thought they'd tackle the greatest of them all first! The wonderful tale of Pip, Miss Havisham, and the spiteful Estella is retold here with fresh enthusiasm contained within Victorian ambience. If you know the story already, you must buy this graphical novel - and if you don't know the story, then this book is the best way to enjoy one of the greatest works of literary history.
The year is 1812. A young orphan, who calls himself Pip, is kneeling beside the grave of his dead family. Shivering in the cold winter air and crying over the passing of his relatives, he is completely unaware that something is about to happen that will change his life forever.
Written at a difficult time in Dickens' life, many consider Great Expectations to be his finest work; and this graphic novel has been painstakingly produced to do justice to this wonderful story.
As with all Classical Comics' Classic titles the period is faithful to the author's intentions, and there is a choice of two text versions.
A note on abridgement: this Original Text version uses text written by the author. Passages and phrases are used verbatim in the panels, while descriptions are presented by the artwork. Chapter references and every event is included, although a number of episodes in the lengthy Dickens original are substantially shortened.
