Classics Illustrated The Scarlett Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Jill Thompson


Classics Illustrated The Scarlett Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Jill Thompson

D. H. Lawrence said that there could be no more perfect work of the American imagination than The Scarlet Letter, which makes it perfect for Classics Illustrated . P. Craig Russell is known for both his collaborations with best-selling author Neil Gaiman ( The Sandman, Ramadan ) and adaptations of Gaiman's such as Coraline and Sandman: The Endless, all of which makes Russell an inspired choice to adapt The Scarlet Letter . Jill Thompson, another distinguished Gaiman collaborator (Sandman: Brief Lives ), working from layouts by Russell, fully paints each page in breath-taking watercolours.
