Things noticed in the comic books that adapt literature into illustrations
David Dempsey, writing in the New York Times Book Review, has said of the comic book Julias Caesar that it has "a Brutus that looks astonishingly like Superman. 'Our course will seem too bloody to cut the head off and then back the limbs . . .' says Brutus, in language that sounds like Captain Marvel. . ." and he notes that "Julius Caesar is followed by a story called "Tippy, the Terrier.' "
An adaptation from one of Mark Twain's novels has the picture of two small boys in a fight, one tearing the other's hair—a scene not the keynote of Mark Twain's novel. Inside, three consecutive pictures show a fight between two boys ("In an instant both boys were gripped together like cats") and the last picture shows one boy with a finger almost in the other's eye (the injury-to-the-eye motif again).
