The original three-volume anthology The Graphic Canon presented the world’s classic literature – from ancient times to the late 20th century – as eye-popping comics, illustrations and other visual forms. In this follow-up volume, young people’s literature through the ages is given new life by the best comics 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, uncensored and unsanitised.

 

Rachael Ball and many more artists and illustrators reimagine great works of children’s literature, such as Ball, “THE WEARDALE FAIRIES.”
