Graphic Novels Quiz – guessing closed

So many books are being retold these days, graphic style.  I went to the library and chose 10 graphic books.  The first 6 are classics (one is not a novel).  I accidentally picked up two copies of the same book, one original text and one quick text, SO #10 is the same book as one of the first 9.  Just give me the title of the book it’s based on.

You have until noon Sunday to submit your answers as a comment.  Comment will be hidden until I post the answers.  No Googling!

This round will last til August.  The person with the most points will win a B&N gift card (total $ based on # of total participants, so please play) and a randomly selected participant will win a fun prize from me.

Have fun and Good Luck!
