Vol. 2 delivers a nineteenth-century cornucopia that includes Maxon Crumb and Gris Grimly's versions of Poe's visions, Eisner Award-winning artist Bill Sienkiewicz's take on Moby-Dick, and, for the first time, a selection from Huckleberry Finn exactly as Twain wrote it. The bad boys of Romanticism--Shelley, Keats, and Byron--are here along with the Brontë sisters, ink versions of Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra and Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Frankenstein, Les Misérables, Oliver Twist, and Crime and Punishment (a hallucinatory take on the pivotal murder scene), join Thoreau's Walden (in spare line art by John Porcellino of King-Cat Comics fame), Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman, and two of Emily Dickinson's greatest poems. The inimitable Dame Darcy puts her unmistakable stamp on--what else?--the Alice in Wonderland books, a fiery speech from freed slave Frederick Douglass is rendered in stark black and white by Seth Tobocman, and P. Craig Russell puts a new spin on Wagner's colossal Ring cycle of operas (which won him two Eisner Awards), along with many other canonical works in new guises.
