Panel Borders: Classical Comics

January 4, 2008

Panel Borders: Classical Comics
To be broadcast 10/01/08 as part of Strip! on Resonance 104.4 FM

In the first Panel Borders of the new year, Duncan Nott conducts an interview with Karen Wenborn about her company’s adaptations of classic literature in comics format. Following in the footsteps of the beloved Classics Illustrated alongside recent Marvel and Manga adaptations of notable fiction, Classical Comics are publishing three versions of each Shakespeare text – the original play (unabridged), a ‘plain text’ version and a ‘quick read’ version for students of varying age and ability and have so far adapted Henry V and Macbeth. Classical also have forthcoming graphic novel adaptations of Jane Eyre & Great Expections which are to be shortly released with more to follow, so Duncan talks to Karen about these books, the challenge of fitting in with the National Curriculum and encouraging children to read.
