I was taking a break when Graphic Classics approached me with a short Edgar Allen Poe story "The Oval Portrait." No, I hadn't heard of it either. Cool enough though was it's premise of artistic wanking killing it's subject. You gotta love that; it's been my mantra forever (though I fall prey to the brass polish more than most.)
Anyway, they sent me a couple examples of other books in the series, and it's really great stuff. There's a great eclectic force of styles in the books, suited to the classic titles. Have a look at the website here. Personally, it takes me back to Ivanhoe days with Gold Key Classics.
Great stuff.
