This year, DC Comics has gone after the teen girl demographic with new comics not just about going out with the cute guy but also about stories that appeal to their
individuality, assertiveness, and intelligence. In the same spirit, we have packaged our new Graphic Deluxe edition of Louisa May Alcott's
Little Women to appeal to the next generation of young women who will do Jo, Beth, Amy,
and Meg proud. Julie Doucet, one of the top young female graphic artists at work today, designs a fun and satirical cover for the all-American beloved classic of the
March sisters. Jane Smiley, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Thousand Acres and, most recently, Ten Days in the Hills, has written a great new
introduction. Also, November 2007 marks the 175th anniversary of Louisa May Alcott's birth.
