Re: Classics Illustrated

A reader tells me that: “Valiant Comics (bought up by Acclaim) reissued

many of the Classics Illustrateds in the mid-’90s, complete with new

introductions and back matter by various academics. They were edited by

Madeleine Robbins.”

The more I think about it, the more I think I’d like to get some of these

for my kids. The picture-strip Bible went over well. And let’s face it, in

this visual age, they’re not going to read their way through the literary

canon. They may as well acquaint themselves with the stories, though, via

an accessible means.
