"My senior year in high school, I took a test on ‘A Tale of Two Cities', a book I had somehow failed to read. What I had read, years before, was the Classics Illustrated version - read it so often that I had the story pretty much by heart. I aced the test. Classics Illustrated taught me the value of good stories that I otherwise would not have read at all. Children are more ruthless about what they consider entertaining. They don't love books because they think they should. They love stories that deliver, and Classics Illustrated always had the goods. Looks like it still does."
"I remember reading ‘The War of the Worlds' and I remember reading the book which I had ordered in school through the Scholastic Book Club. [‘The War of the Worlds'] was a classic "Classic". I've seen the old and new movie versions of that H. G. Wells classic, but my vision of what a Tripod looks like is still in that comic book. The comic of ‘The Invisible Man' had better special effects than any film of the time."

"The new range of Classics Illustrated has really taken off at OK Comics. We try to keep them in stock all the time, but they constantly sell out. Customers are always excited about the upcoming issues. Classic Comic Store are really easy to deal with. A quick phone call and the required books are on their way."
