Workable texts

I was was trying to think about a list of classic texts that would be good to translate into comic form. Ideally the texts would be short, ideally around 100 pages and out of copyright.
The idea being that a comic artists could take this text and use it to cut their teeth with the comic medium. Perhaps even a single text that had been done before, imagine being able to compare how different artists tackle the same subject matter.

Here is a list I have come up with (with some help from internet friends)


  • Hamlet
  • Death of Robin (Theme?)
  • The Bible
  • Metamorphosis
  • The Raven
  • A Christmas Carol
  • 20,000 leagues under the sea
  • Sherlock holmes (Character)
  • Dickens (Author)
Feel free to leave some more suggestions in the comments. Whilst the all the above do not all fit the criteria I thought it wold stil be interesting to list.
