The Brontë Sisters, now with Kung-Fu Grip!

Posted on

“Book on, Brontës!” If you’re a fan of action figures, Victorian literature, or both, you should check out this kickass fake commercial for the Brontë Sisters Power Dolls, as the first siblings of literature fight their way past patriarchic literary norms with book-flinging action, just like they did in real life. These twisted sisters take a cannon to the Western canon!

Are there any other authors you think would make for good action figures? G.I. Poe, perhaps? Barbie and Ken Follett? He-Man Melville?
