Unclassy classical parody

The Crypt of Bronte

Robert Sikoryak’s Masterpiece Comics, his ongoing parody of classic literature using classic comic strip memes, comes out in a September anthology through Drawn&Quarterly, but you can download a sample now featuring Wuthering Heights. “Eek! Heathcliffe!”

Sikoryak was recently interviewed on WFMU’s The Speakeasy with Dorian and spoke about the anthology, his ongoing public performances via “Carousel,” and his distaste for the term “graphic novels.”

You’ll also find his adaption of Camus “The Stranger” in Ivan Brunetti’s Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Cartoons and True Stories Vol 2, which is conveniently available now. There’s a great promo for the book and an interview with Brunetti at Parson’s blog.
