"In The Graphic Canon, the world’s literature is reimagined as comics and visual art, and with it the editor, Russ Kick, has struck a chord."
—New York Times Sunday Book Review (Editor's Choice)
“A must-have anthology for those who wish to lose themselves utterly in visual narrative adaptations of the works of the Western canon. . . . Editor Kick certainly gets it right.”
“This is not only a survey of the world’s diverse artistic past, but also a breathtaking glimpse of this young medium’s incredible future."
—Booklist (starred review)
"One of the most ambitious [projects] in the history of the graphic medium.... The Graphic Canon continues to be an enrapturing experience... a vibrant, feverish dance through some of the best parts of our artistic history."
