Experience CLASSIC tales in MANGA format!
Considered to be Charles Dickens finest novel, Great Expectations has it all: romance, mystery, comedy and unforgettable characters woven through a gripping rags-to-riches tale.
In the telling of Pip's story, Dickens traces a naïve boy's path from a hardscrabble rural life to the teeming streets of 19th-century London, unfolding a gripping tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward, and love and loss. Its compelling characters include Magwitch, the fearful and fearsome convict; beautifully cold Estella, whose allure is excelled only by her haughtiness; and the embittered Miss Havisham, an eccentric jilted bride and the rest of Dickens’s fantastic cast are perfectly envisioned in this brilliant adaptation featuring the beautiful artwork by Nokman Poon.
A Note From the Publisher
"The art is simply breathtaking. The dress designs are very beautiful and pleasant to look at and the face expressions of the characters are very well developed. I could feel the emotions of each scene from the drawings and the different atmospheres from the different places in the novel. I especially liked the manor of Miss Havisham and the dusty darkish room she is in, and I think it represents perfectly the state of her life and her unhappiness...The first adaptation that actually made me appreciate the genius of Charles Dickens!"
