The Atlantic Wire: “This is going to be fun”

From the Atlantic Wire, February 9, 2012:

This is going to be fun: Robert Crumb, Will Eisner, and 128 other illustrators are going to condense the western canon (not to be confused with the Russian canon) into a three-volume graphic novel that will total 1,334 pages in length. The first volume (From the Epic of Gilgamesh to Shakespeare to Dangerous Liasons) is coming out in April, with part two (Kubla Khan to the Brontë Sisters to The Picture of Dorian Gray) due in July. The final installment (From Heart of Darkness to Hemingway to Infinite Jest) is scheduled for October.

Fun indeed! Like these guys are having:
