A gorgeous, one-of-a-kind trilogy brings classic literature of the world together with legendary graphic artists and illustrators. Volume 1 whirls from eye-popping renditions of the great epics like The Odyssey and The Canterbury Tales; to Robert Crumb's rarely seen adaptation of Boswell's London Journal; from the Book of Esther from the Old Testament to Hinduism's Bhagavad Gita; from three of Shakespeare's greatest plays (including a manga Macbeth) to Gulliver's Travels; all the way to the decadent French classic Dangerous Liasons. And much, much, much more.

"Coyote and the pebbles" by Dayton Edmonds ; art by Micah Farritor is my favorite! The best comic short I have read in quiet a while. This book is really great I cant wait for the future volumes!
