The New York Times
bestseller — now an eye-popping graphic novel of manners, morals, and brain-eating mayhem!
It is known as "the strange plague," and its unfortunate victims are referred to only as "unmentionables" or "dreadfuls." All over England, the dead are rising again, and now even the daughters of Britain's best families must devote their lives to mastering the deadly arts. Elizabeth Bennet is a fearsome warrior whose ability with a sword is matched only by her quick wit and even sharper tongue. But she faces her most formidable foe yet in the haughty, conceited, and somehow strangely attractive Mr. Darcy. As the two lovers meet in the ballroom and on the battlefield, they'll soon learn that nothing — not even bands of ninjas, hordes of flesh-eating zombies, or disapproving aunts — can stop true love.
The New York Times bestseller is now an eye-popping graphic novel of manners, morals, and brain-eating mayhem. The dead are rising in England, and it's up to fearsome warrior Elizabeth Bennet to dispatch them.
