You know Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain ? Here I’m going to talk about Le nouveau Tom Sawyer , a recent manga published in 2014 , by the editor KOMMIKU in France.
I’ve discovered this adaptation one month ago, and some references can be seen. But for me, it’s a bad adaptation. Why ?
Save for the character and the fact he is resourceful and adventurous , the similarity stops here. There aren’t enough mystery and adventures to be a good adaptation from the work of Mark Twain. There isn’t a real main theme.
My point of view about this work is that I can’t call this an adaptation. It’s better to say that the manga is inspired by the novel of Mark Twain.
Nevertheless, connoisseur of manga can be interested by this !
