Classics go graphic

Enjoy reading Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn or Journey To The Centre of The Earth? Well, now you can read these classics in a brand new avatar with better illustrations and adapted plots.

Campfire, a company that  deals exclusively in graphic novels, offers their readers an option to read their classic favourites in the form of graphic books. That too for just Rs 150.

“Youngsters are so distracted these days that they forget the joy of immersing themselves in a good book. So, graphic novels are ideal. Our shortest titles can be enjoyed in as little as two hours,” says Andrew Dodd, chief editor, Campfire.

The company provides graphic novels in four categories — classics, mythology, biographies and originals. “In the classics category, we have selected some of the most popular books of all time. We felt that by adapting these stories, we would be able to introduce young people to a part of literature, they had not experienced before,” says Dodd.
