5.0 out of 5 stars Emma: The Graphic Novel... Oct. 5 2011
By D. S. Thurlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Following "Pride and Prejudice" and "Sense and Sensibility", writer Nancy Butler and Marvel Comics take on the challenge of translating a third Jane Austen novel into graphic novel format, with the assistance of artist Janet Lee. This time, it's Austen's superb romantic comedy "Emma", about a rich, handsome, and precocious young woman who imagines that she is the matchmaker of the village of Highbury.

As the story opens, Emma congratulates herself on arranging the marriage of her governess to a local widower and, ignoring the advice of older confidant George Knightley, takes on the case of Miss Harriet Knight. Emma decides that Harriet, a young woman of amiable disposition but uncertain parentage, is to be married to the local Vicar, Mr. Elton. Emma takes pains to bring the two together, only to get an hilariously unintended result.

Emma's next foray into matchmaking is triggered by the exciting arrival in Highbury of the handsome, charming, and mischevious Mr. Frank Churchill. Mr. Churchill will confuse Emma by appearing to pay attention to several women, including the accomplished Miss Jane Fairfax, Harriet Smith, and Emma, who finds herself wondering if she has fallen in love. A dance and a fateful picnic add to the romantic confusion, leading Emma to a shocking discovery about who she really cares about...

"Emma" is very highly recommended as an introduction to Jane Austen's original novel. Butler and Lee do an excellent job capturing the essentials of the story in a graphic format very suitable for the younger reader, and for Jane Austen fans of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb adaptation of the classic novel Jan. 8 2012
By Don - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Wonderful adaptation! Nancy Butler's compression of Jane Austen's fully realized novel is superb, keeping all of the major characters and plot points, yet without feeling there's anything left out; at the same time, a pleasurable side effect is that this is a very dense read, and makes the book last about twice as long as the average graphic novel. The true star of this book, however, is Janet Lee, whose illustrations are stellar. Seemingly a mixture of watercolor, marker, pastels and pen (and more?), Lee's art displays a clarity of storytelling and an odd mixture of frivolity and slight caricature which fits well with Austen's setting. If you've loved Emma before, you should find this adaptation a welcome joy, and the title character herself immediately recognizable as the well-intentioned twit she's always been.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Edition review June 17 2013
By J. Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was our first venture trying out graphic novels on our Kindle. The book itself was fine. A great interpretation of a familiar story.

The experience of reading the book was somewhat frustrating. Granted, we might not be savvy enough to know all the tricks of reading comics in this format, so I can only speak to our experience. Not being able to zoom in and out of the individual panels made it difficult to read. The print was pretty small.

We did feel compelled to buy the TPB of the story in the near future.
4.0 out of 5 stars great retelling of classic April 8 2013
By Eliza Abelov - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This adaptation of the Austen classic was an excellent read. I was just a little put off at first by the unconventional drawings, but by the second half of the book, I had grown to really enjoy the unique artistic style. EMMA is now my favorite of the Austen Marvel Classics!

It is a bit of a heavy read for a "comic", but these days graphic novels can be just as wordy as traditional novels, so that shouldn't detract from the overall experience of the book. Plus, its a little hard to condense Austen and still keep the characteristic Regency flavor of the story.

Great read, highly recommend!
