Nancy Butler, who successfully translated Jane Austen's superlative into graphic novel format for Marvel Comics, here attempts the same feat for Jane Austen's earlier novel, , that Marvel published as a 5-part miniseries later collected and published as a trade paperback.

Ms. Butler succeeds admirably, aided by Sonny Liew who provides the necessary graphic artistry.
