Fresh off her much-admired art for RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN, Janet K. Lee is next adapting Emma for Marvel’s line of Jane Austen comics. NY Times best selling author Nancy Butler does the writing, as she did on SENSE AND SENSIBILITY and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE.
Emma Woodhouse, a young privileged woman living in nineteenth century England, has delved into the world of match making! Join New York Times best-selling writer Nancy Butler (Sense & Sensibility) and rising star artist Janet K. Lee (Return of the Dapper Men) this March as they bring to life one of Jane Austen’s most regarded stories like you’ve never seen before, Emma #1! Despite her best intentions, Emma may think too much of her own matchmaking abilities but it won’t stop her from sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong.
“Emma’s foibles are OUR foibles, and many of us can relate when her earnest but misguided efforts to “fix” her friends go awry.” says writer Nancy Butler. “Some of us have even discovered, as Emma does, that the perfect partner was right under our noses. Ultimately, Emma’s journey toward wisdom and maturity reveals insights we can all benefit from.”
Artist, Janet K. Lee couldn’t adds, “Some people geek out about baseball stats, others geek out about Star Trek – I however, geek out about Jane Austen. Getting to play in her world is a geek-girl’s dream come true!”
Does true love await for our troubled matchmaker? Find out this March in Emma #1!
