Pride and prejudice

Di Sicks


Ebook: epub + mobi + pdf

Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is interpreted by the Italian illustrator Sicks. This graphic novel is the first English ebook released by Zandegù. It belongs to the series I Bignè, our super-short graphic synopsis of famous classic novels in a funny ebook version.

In order to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice since its first release in 1813, Sicks – an illustrator and painter based in Rome, graduated from the ‘Scuola Internazionale di Comics’– revisits the story in an ironic way, with a sepia look and a feminine and yet modern touch.

The novel tells about a cutting edge love story: proud Elizabeth Bennet falls in love with biased Mr. Darcy. Or is it the other way around? Unforgettable and funny characters, a lot of solidarity between the Bennet girls and lots of L-O-V-E. Pride and Prejudice is one of the most reinterpreted novels of the past few years: movies, zombies… and now Zandegù publishes the first graphic novel ‘made in Italy’ of Pride and Prejudice!



Sicks lives in Rome. She has always had a thing for comic books and illustration but she starts as a painter being part of a 9 people group; she participates with them in several editions of Crack! fumetti dirompenti. She exhibits her works into community centers, cultural associations and art galleries such as True Hate Art Gallery in La Rochelle (France), MF Gallery in New York and Mondo Pop Gallery in Rome.

After a while, she decides to dedicate herself to the illustration for the music industry. She draws concert posters, t-shirt graphics and CD covers for Italian and foreigner independent bands. She graduates in 2D Animation from ‘Scuola Internazionale di Comics’ and she has never forgotten comic books.
