The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn The Adventures of Huckleberry by P-Wiley

VIEWS: 251 PAGES: 4

Huck Finn: The Manga Edition will be a hit with both manga readers and in the classroom. A four-page essay at the beginning ties the novel and manga together; the rest of the book is taken up with the manga novel itself. So, there should be strong carryover between those people who are manga readers and those teachers/students who want a new and unique way to read the plays. Our Huck Finn manga is true to the original context of the play--we don't take Huck, Jim, and the rest of the characters and set them in a setting/time that's not relevant to Twain's original and intended time/setting. Also, we don't shy away frm the controversial language that you find in Twain's original work. You could say that ours is "true" to the novel.

Hyeondo Park
Hyeondo Park, at the age of 10, moved from Seoul, South Korea to Dallas, Texas with his mother and
two brothers to reunite with his father. He had a special passion for comics growing up, and he
sometimes waited until midnight at the local bookstore to get the latest issue. He loved the laughter, the
excitement, the danger, and the suspense of comics, which he could read over and over again and could
buy on his weekly allowance. It is one of many reasons why he attended and graduated from the School
of Visual Arts in 2006 as a cartoonist. Now he hopes that his comics will provide the same excitement
and entertainment value for others as they did for him when he was young.Visit Hyeondo's Web site at
