On Friday, Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment topped our crowdsourced list of Books Intelligent People Should Read. If you haven’t read Dostoyevsky’s classic novel of murder and guilt, you should give it a go. But if you’re looking for a lighter, more playful take on the novel, we give you Dostoyevsky Comics, a short cartoon adaptation that somehow inserts Batman into the Russian tale. The comic was authored by R. Sikoryak, who specializes in creating comic parodies of literary classics. You can purchase his Masterpiece Comics on Amazon here.
