    Li’l Classix, a brand-new five-days-a-week webcomic by Grady Hendrix and Ryan Dunlavey launches TODAY!

    Grady & Ryan will be adapting great works of classic literature as gag-a-day newspaper style comic strips, and they’re kicking it off with the junior high required reading perennial Little Women, Louisa May Alcott’s heartwarming tale of sisterhood, creepy boyfriends, scarlet fever and poverty. Little Women will run most of June, followed by Romeo & Juliet in July. Follow the insanity via TumblrRSS or Grady & Ryan’s twitter. Heck, do all four.
