Canterbury Tales Graphic Novel App for iPad

'46 page comic - "The Canterbury Tales", a work by 14th-century English writer Geoffrey Chaucer, is one of the most important pieces of literature ever. Influential in so many ways, it was the first text to feature a wide range of believable characters. Characters with worldviews completely at odds with the times at that, and historians are still trying to figure out if Chaucer was perhaps an overlooked, brilliant satirist. "The Canterbury Tales" was the first major work of fiction to use prose instead of poetry - indeed, it was the first to be written in English. A landmark then, a truly brilliant achievement by an artist far ahead of his time.

Everything that "Canterbury Tales", this adaptation by 21st-century Belgian comics artist Lük Bey is not.'
