Classics Illustrated (First)

 CLIF   (First, 1990-1992)

ô and ©1990 The Berkeley Publishing Group and First Publishing
Reprints from Classics Illustrated (Gilberton).

In 1941, Albert L. Kanter hit upon the idea of using comic books to introduce children to the joy of reading. He adapted some of the great classics of literature into comic-book form, then sold his creation, Classic Comics, to parents and educators. After a shaky start, the series changed its name to Classics Illustrated, and went on to become one of the best-loved comic series of all time.

In 1990, First Comics reintroduced the series in a deluxe, beautifully illustrated format. This new series makes the old favorites fresh again, breathing new life into this great line of comics.
