NOT FOR SALE TO WIVES AND SERVANTS

The famous novel by D.H. Lawrence of life and love in 1920s England, reworked as a hilarious comic book by Britain’s zaniest cartoonist, Hunt Emerson.

Lady Chatterley’s Lover has been notorious since it was written. Banned for 30 years, it was published in 1960, immediately becoming the first novel charged under the newly written Obscene Publications Act. Eventually acquitted in a blaze of publicity, the book has now been elevated to the status of the classic English novel. And now Hunt Emerson, the master of underground comics, puts his own spin on the story.

Outrageous and hilarious by turns, Emerson’s take on the book is faithful to the original but much, much funnier.

Comics Review

“Hunt Emerson is one of our greatest comic strip creators, and his slightly skewed reinterpretation might not to the tastes of some Lawrence purists, but Lady Chatterley’s Lover is an honest piece of work, masterfully accomplished. His take is true to the spirit of the original but is seasoned with the modern sensibilities of generations who have grown up allowed to talk about and even joke about sex. He also gets away with drawing naughty bits without getting the entire comics industry sent to prison. Hoorah for freedom!” – Win Wiacek
