Around the World in 80 Days and new British JES Editions

We're proud to announce the release of Classics Illustrated number 31, Around the World in 80 Days this week - you can find it in the CI Modern section here. An excellent comic of the wonderful Jules Verne tale. Also released this week is the Canadian import of Rapunzel in the CI Junior series. Find the Junior issuses here.

This month we've also released the first two of 14 new issues to be added to the Joint European Series (JES) collection produced throught last year. The two are Ian Fleming's Dr No and Oscar Wilde's The Canterville Ghost. You can find them here. The 14 new issues are facsimiles of the 13 original Classics Illustrated titles that were only ever done in the UK CI series, plus an exclusive - the UK painted cover version of Frederick Marryat's Mr. Midshipman Easy - now perhaps the rarest of all CI issues, with original copies reaching up to £1000!

This week we've started work on upcoming issues in the Classics Illustrated line, so be sure to look out for sneak previews of them on our Facebook page...
