A Seven Stories Press first edition.

Publication Information

New York : Seven Stories Press, [2014]

Physical Description

xi, 469 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 28 cm


The original three-volume anthology The Graphic Canon presented the world's classic literature -- from ancient times to the late twentieth century -- as eye-popping comics, illustrations, and other visual forms. In this follow-up, young people's literature through the ages is given new life for an adult audience by contemporary comic artists and illustrators. Fairy tales, fables, fantastical adventures, young adult novels, swashbuckling yarns, your favorite stories from childhood and your teenage years -- they're all here, in all their original complexity and strangeness, before they were censored or sanitized.


Chiefly illustrations.
