This unique biography will compare and contrast the lives and work of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters via comics, essays and an accompanying podcast.
Each week, authors Lauren (Team Bronte) and Hannah (Team Austen) will present their research and debate topics such as Darcy vs. Heathcliff, Steventon vs. Haworth, and Northanger Abbey vs. Jane Eyre on their podcast. Bronte biographers, Austenesque authors, fashion researchers, artists and actors will be interviewed to weigh in on this very important debate.
Each chapter of the book will be comprised of Team Austen and Team Bronte essays drawn from the discussion on the podcast and feature comics from some of our favorite artists. Here are a few things you can expect -
Popular animators - the Satrun sisters, will illustrate Victorian and Regency fashions in paper doll style.
Cheesecake artist extraordinaire, Monica Ras, is tackling our chapter on Victorian men versus Regency heroes, and drawing our beloved Bronte and Austen men as hunks.
Storyboard specialist J.M. Tolman will craft an illustrated quiz to test your knowledge.
Gothic-inspired comic artist, Laura Neubert will illustrate our trip to the Bronte Parsonage.
And many more artists will be announced!
