Pride and Prejudice is to be a Marvel comic book! From a message (forwarded on from Nancy Butler) on the Janeites Yahoo Group:

Well, I’ve just seen the first of the pencilled pages, so now I believe this is really going to happen and can announce it with some confidence. . . Marvel Illustrated presents Pride and Prejudice, adapted by Nancy Butler with artwork by Hugo Petreus. Five issues starting April of 2009.

This could be a lot of fun! More info as it arrives…
