Marvel, of course, are better known for superhero comics such as Spiderman and The Incredible Hulk and so it was a departure for them when, in 1976, they began to produce their own Classic Comics with Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. The more popular and well known series, Classics Illustrated - www.classicsillustrated.co.uk
- had finished in 1971 and Marvel felt they could re-invigorate the genre. In all 36 of them were produced and they were generally well drawn and well interpreted. Some gaffes were made - H.G.Wells' The First Men in the Moon was attributed to Jules Verne - and The Cyclops in Homer's Odyssey was drawn as horned and purple - Marvel simply couldn't stop drawing outlandish, out of this world monsters. Most of the titles had appeared in the CI series but two new ones were adapted - H. Rider Haggard's She and Bram Stoker's Dracula.
