Masterpiece Comics byR. Sikoryak 741.5973 SIKORYAK

The classics of literature come to hilarious new life reimagined as classic comic strip and comic book characters. We have Garfield as Mephistofield the demon cat tempting Faustus, Batman as Raskol of Crime and Punishment, The Metamorphosis starring Charlie Brown, and many more.

Sikoryak has been able to flawlessly duplicate the art style of over a dozen different artists of classic comic strips and comics. He’s also able to take the essence of the classic novels and still keep the essence of the comic he uses to satirize it. It makes for absolutely hilarious reading. However, if you are unfamiliar with the classics or the comics he uses to parody them, then a good deal of the humor is lost. However, if you like old comic strips and classic literature this is one of the funniest mash-ups you’ll read.
