With the popularity of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and all re-invented classics with supernatural creatures, it comes as no surprise the tale of Little Women has become reinterpreted as well. This time with werewolves.
Little Women and Werewolves synopsis: Little Women is a timeless classic. But Louisa May Alcott’s first draft—before her editor sunk his teeth into it—was even better. Now the original text has at last been exhumed. In this uncensored version, the March girls learn some biting lessons, transforming from wild girls into little women—just as their friends and neighbors transform into vicious, bloodthirsty werewolves!
Here are tomboy Jo, quiet Beth, ladylike Amy, and good-hearted Meg, plus lovable neighbor Laurie Laurence, now doomed to prowl the night on all fours, maiming and devouring the locals. As the Civil War rages, the girls learn the value of being kind, the merits of patience and grace, and the benefits of knowing a werewolf who can disembowel your teacher.
This graphic novel by Louisa M. Alcott and Porter Grand is being released by the publisher Del Rey.
