D. H. Lawrence said that there could be no more perfect work of the American imagination than Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, which makes it ideal material for CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED. Adapted by award-winning graphic novelists P. Craig Russell and Jill Thompson. In addition to his incredible graphic adaptations of operas, the fairy tales of Oscar Wilde, and Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, P. Craig Russell is known for both his collaborations with best-selling author Neil Gaiman (The Sandman story "Ramadan") and adaptations of Gaiman's works, such as "Coraline" and "Sandman: The Endless," all of which makes Russell an inspired choice to adapt The Scarlet Letter. Russell broke down the novel into comic book script form as well as page layouts, providing artist Jill Thompson, also a well-know Neil Gaiman collaborator ("Sandman: Brief Lives"), the foundation for her beautifully painted comics pages.
The Scarlet Letter: The Manga Edition will be a hit with both manga readers and in the classroom. A four-page essay at the beginning ties the novel and manga together; the rest of the book is taken up with the manga novel itself. So, there should be strong carryover between those people who are manga readers and those teachers/students who want a new and unique way to read the plays. Our The Scarlet Letter manga is true to the original context of the play--we don't take Hester and Pearl and set them in a setting/time that's not relevant to Hawthorne's original and intended time/setting. You could say that ours is "true" to the novel.

The Scarlet Letter: A Romance is an 1850 fictional novel in a historical setting, written by American author Nathaniel Hawthorne. The book is considered to be his "masterwork".

Throughout the book, Hawthorne explores themes of legalism, sin, and guilt.
