I loved reading Classics Illustrated comics when I was a kid. My introduction to the classics began when I had the flu one time, and Dad came home with some 7UP and a couple of these comics. Robin Hood and Frankenstein, I think.
I'd seen the Errol Flynn movie, of course, but as I sat propped up on pillows with my 7Up and my fever, I was transported back to Sherwood Forest where I joined Robin and his Merry Men robbing the rich and giving to the poor. Pretty revolutionary stuff. My girlfriend is in grad school getting a master's degree in non-profit leadership and fundraising, and she already has plenty of reading to do, but I might suggest adding this slim volume to her stack of books.
