…of something I didn’t like in high school and something I don’t like right now: Jeffrey Brown is doing the cover for the Penguin Classics edition of Ethan Frome, by Edith Wharton, one of the worst books I ever had the misfortune of reading.  I like to take it as a simultaneous confirmation of my opinions of the artist and the book that they’ve come together like this.

To be fair though, despite my distaste for a lot of Jeff Brown’s comics, the cover is pretty great.  He can draw like hell when he wants to and it’s actually quite a clever cover.  Whatever, I still hate that book.
