    One Reply to “Emma”

    1. Emma has always been one of my least favorite of the Austen books (by saying least favorite that implies it still IS a favorite), so I was surprised by how much I loved the graphic novel.But in hindsight I shouldn't be - Janet K. Lee's beautiful artwork and adaptation perfectly capture all the ever important subtle/unspoken content. Loved it! It almost made me prefer Mr. Knightly to Mr. Darcy. Almost, not quiteNow I'm off to read the Northanger Abbey.

    2. Emma the story is good, and this is less an adaptation than "putting the story into thought bubbles" so the plot works. The art isd. It's bad. Has the artist seen humans before? Unclear.

    3. I enjoyed the artwork in this adaptation. And I was glad to find a copy of this to add to my other Austen graphic novels.

    4. The Marvel Illustrated version of Jane Austen’s Emma collects the five comic book series by Nancy Butler and Janet Lee (illustrator) in a single hardcover volume. The graphic novel retells the classic novel in bright colors, which is what I would expect when depicting the lively Emma Woodhouse, from the start of her matchmaking exploits until the moment when she understands her own heart and realizes she’s made a mess of things.Butler does a decent job condensing the novel into dialogue. She [...]

    5. This is a Marvell comics adaptation of a Jane Austen classic novel to a graphic novel format. I wasn't so thrilled with the illustrations this time. The Marvel "Pride and Prejudice" was a much lovelier adaptation. But this did have its moments. Fun if you have read the original some time ago and just want to refresh your memory. I had bought several editions of the comic book, but not the whole set. This is all five of the comic books combined into a hardback graphic novel. The cover art is bett [...]

    6. I'm going to preface this with the statement that I don't like Emma. I was really looking forward to reading this knowing that I don't like Emma, and maybe it will actually grow on me.Well, I still don't like Emma, but I found the graphic novel format well done to the point where I found it helped with the story. If you hate Emma, like I do, this might be what you need to make it palatable.

    7. Ya conocía el trabajo de Nancy Butler que se encarga de la adaptación. Hay que decir que en ese sentido es impecable. Sin embargo no puedo decir lo mismo del diseño. Unos dibujos nada adecuados y que sobretodo me parecieron feos. Y muchas veces las expresiones que tenían los personajes o no cuadraban con lo que decían o tenían cara de estar asqueados, mosqueados o totalmente indiferentes.

    8. I'm not sure if it was the brisk pacing or the quirky art, but something made me love this adaptation of Emma. This is remarkable because Emma Woodhouse always drives me batty, yet here I found her tolerable- and even almost amusing at points. There was a sweetness and lightness in this pruned-down version of the story that meant I never reached the frustration level I did in the original novel, and I am thankful for that.

    9. This has never been my favorite Austen and I wasn't a huge fan of the illustrations in this one. That being said, it's still Austen and that means the dialogue is still on point.

    10. What do you get when you combine one of Jane Austen’s classic works with the minds behind Marvel Comics? Why, a graphic novel series of course. Nancy Butler has turned three of Austen’s works into graphic novel format thus far: Sense and Sensibility (which I’ve reviewed here), Pride and Prejudice, and now Emma. As the newest release, Emma intrigued me because I’ve already enjoyed one of Butler’s works, and figured that combining two of my great literary interests (Austen and to a lesse [...]

    11. ¡Me encantó! Debo decir que es una idea magnifica adaptar clasicos a versión de novela grafica, y en esta ocasión hicieron un genial trabajo. No puedo decir si es una fiel adaptación de la novela original, porque aún no la he leído (cosa que espero hacer pronto), pero me gustó muchísimo. La historia es sencilla y fluida sin ser tediosa. De pronto resaltaría el hecho de que el arte del cómic no es lo mejor, las ilustración pudieron haber sido más bellas, pero comprendo que no ha de s [...]

    12. Emma is a long book, and Butler did a great job abridging the major plot points in these five issues, but nothing will ever beat Austen's original prose. The art is fanciful and I appreciate Lee's attention to Regency-specific detail.

    13. A well-paced but not overly-condensed adaptation of Jane Austen's novel, this comic version is a fun read for anyone familiar with the story, and even for anyone who isn't (though it might be a little convoluted to the uninitiated). I loved the colorful, pattern-rich illustration, but at times some of the characters were too similar looking.

    14. I love jane austen to be sure. But I was not very fond of emma. Though she learned the error of her ways. I just could not really relate with emma or much of the characters in the book. I don't know maybe I am just meant for that type of society. Though not liking emma to much will not stop me from contineing to like jane austen and her other works. She is still one of my favorite authors

    15. I am giving this 4 stars, not so much because I loved it, but it provided me a way to learn the story in a short amount of time. Marvel should be praised for bringing literary works to the graphic novel form to increase accessibility to the material. Great job.

    16. Meh. It's more about the Jane Austen source material than the graphic novel. The art is fabulous, but it's Janet Lee, so

    17. I loved revisiting an old classic. having a comic book version of emma let's me read it faster than if I picked up the novel. and it stays true to the vocabulary. the story of emma is more of a comedy read.

    18. After successfully setting up her governess with a local gentleman, Mr Weston, Emma Woodhouse figures that she has a talent for matchmaking. Her next target is the young and naive Harriet Smith, whom Emma believes is the perfect match for the local vicar Mr. Elton, regardless of their differences in class. When her carefully laid plans end in disaster, Emma is forced to realize that that people’s emotions are not as predictable as one might suspect.Following Pride and Prejudice and Sense and S [...]

    19. SeeI tried to read Emma, like, the original, but it was just way too dense for me to dive into, and I didn't find myself really into the characters the same way I was with Pride and Prejudice. NowI have to say that this was an okay read- I suppose if you like Emma, it's a much shorter (BUT NOT THAT MUCH SHORTER) way to get what seems to be the whole plot of the original book. Howeverwho would want to read that book anyway. Emma is one of the most selfish and disillusioned heroines I have ever ha [...]

    20. This beautiful item was a birthday gift from a couple of friends of mine. It is absolutely wonderful! SJW had found the first four issues online, but I refused to read it until I could read it in full, which is what is collected in this beautiful volume. It tells the story of Emma without deviating from the novel. There are a few points that weren't mentioned, that I would have liked to see in, such as the fact that Mrs Bates was the widow of the previous vicar of Highbury. The lack of John Knig [...]

    21. This story is a graphic novel retelling of the Jane Austen classic called Emma. The text is greatly shortened, for a younger reader, and what is left out in words is made up for typically in the panels and pictures. Emma Woodhouse is a young girl whose mother died when she was young, but who has not really wanted for anything. She has a decent amount of pride and sense of entitlement, but other than that, she is generally admired. When she meets a new friend named Harriet Smith and undertakes to [...]

    22. I read this with great trepidation. First confession: I'm not a huge Jane Austen fan. Second confession: I bought the Marvel Austen series for my library but never read any of them. Why does this matter? Ultimately, it doesn't, however, I was weeding the graphic collection for duds and all three we owned (Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice) were sitting on my library shelves like book carcasses.But the covers are like CANDY! I can't believe no one has picked them up. So I found mys [...]

    23. Before I conquer Dr. Mütter’s Marvels, I decided to read the Marvel Illustrated version of Emma. If you’re not aware, Emma is my least favorite of Jane Austen’s novels. (Gasp! Horror!) This being said, I’m getting ready to read my first manga which also happens to be Emma, so maybe I’ll find something to enjoy in the story.I will start that having already read Northanger Abbey, also adapted by Nancy Butler and Janet Lee in the Marvel Illustrated series, it made reading this one a bit [...]

    24. Emma is one of the two Austen books I've yet to read, the other being Mansfield Park. I am very familiar with the story, having seen various adaptations. I have to admit that these two are waiting to be read in the original as they are the least appealing of all the stories. In the case of Emma, she is a mixed bag for me. On the one hand an interesting, spirited young woman; and none of us are perfect, so we can relate to being taken in by people, coming out with inappropriate comments without t [...]

    25. The only reason I even knew about this book is because I met Janet Lee at Dragon*Con last year, and was so blown away by her artwork that I couldn't resist a whole graphic novel that she illustrated - much less that it was Jane Austen.Her decoupage is beautiful, and there were several pages where the panels, side by side by side were absolutely brilliant. In one instance, a couple is dancing in the foreground, while Emma and her companion (probably Mrs. Weston) are talking.There are other times [...]

    26. Whereas this version of Emma doesn’t fall short from Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice as far as adaptation goes, I can definitely see why it is considered less renowned than these two. While reading it, I was also reminded why – when I was asked to read the novel during my studies – I couldn’t finish it. The enormous variety of characters and incidents depicted make the story confusing and hard to follow at times. Often I found myself stopping to make sure I remembered who w [...]

    27. 3 and a half stars.Although I'm not familiar with all of Jane Austen's tales, EMMA is my favorite out of the ones I do know. I was delighted when I found out it came in a graphic novel format and, of course, had to read it. This was my first time reading a classic novel in the form of a graphic novel, and I was pleasantly surprised, as I liked it even more than I expected. I was under the impression that the graphic novel format of a classic book might botch the story in some terrible way, but I [...]

    28. Emma is one of my favorite Austen novels, and I feel like this adaptation did a really good job capturing the feel of the book. It also treated the *character* Emma very gently, which is important to me because I love her and there are some adaptation of Emma that paint her as stupid or excessively self-centered. In the graphic novel it's very clear that while she's sometimes naive, she's a genuinely well-meaning person who is aware that she is flawed and is trying very hard to do right by the p [...]

    29. While I wasn't as immediately enamored with the art of this book as I was the recent telling of Sense and Sensibility, it did grow on me. There are some really creative vantage points taken in the art, it gets pretty creative! I mean, an aerial view of a dining party? Talk about random, and wonderful for breaking up what could have easily become a flat comic! I will certainly say that Butler maps out the story into this medium very well. It's a lovely adaptation, not nearly as drowned-in-text as [...]
