When I began reading comics it was partly to escape the confines of established prose fiction, which seemed to be ' owned ' and purveyed by what I can loosely call mainstream culture. There was an entire line of comics that adapted much of this fiction under the title, Classics Illustrated.
In all the experiences I had of those books, not once did I find anything like the kind of creativity and excitement that I found in other comic books. I'd guess this was mainly due to strong editorial pressure to ' respect ' the original by handcuffing creative licence - but I suspect it was also due to a viewpoint on comics that saw them as just a channel to follow to the superior qualities of the prose original, and, beyond that, to what they perceived as the general superiority of prose itself in contrast to comics storytelling. At Aces Weekly, we have a different attitude - as you might imagine. We love free creativity, and we love the classics, and we think comics have great strengths that can be used to adapt classics freely in a respectful way. And so, this volume, we happily present for you what has been offered to us : Robert Louis Stevenson's, Thrawn Janet, which has been freely, and lovingly, adapted by Stewart Moore... : )
