HILARIOUS PARODIES OF CLASSIC LITERATURE REIMAGINED WITH CLASSIC COMICS Masterpiece Comicsadapts a variety of classic literary works with the most iconic visual idioms of twentieth-century comics. Dense with exclamation marks and lurid zip-a-tone, R. Sikoryak's parodies remind us of the sensational excesses of the canon, or, if you prefer, of the economical expressiveness of classic comics fromSupermantoPeanuts. In Blond Eve," Dagwood and Blondie are ejected from the Garden of Eden into their archetypal suburban home;OscarWilde's Dorian Gray is reimagined as a foppish Winsor McCay character; and Camus's Stranger becomes a brooding, chain-smoking Golden Age Superman.
