Classics Illustrated

I have no idea if this is a good thing, but I have discovered a web site where someone has scanned in each page of the old Classics Illustrated comic books. I used to love these as a child, and I think they make a very good introduction to a lot of the stories they’ll read in high school.

Either because you remember them, or so your children can read some of them, take a look at this web site: Classics Illustrated

  1. What a find!

    If not for personal experience, I would likely have scoffed at introducing children to the classics using comic books. However, my stepdad had a highly prized set of these that he allowed me to read when I was 12 or 13, and they made me hungry for the real things.

  2. Thank you! These are going to come in very handy!

  3. Thanks for finding these! I loved them as a kid, too, and it was a delight to read the “real books” in later years!
