Beautifully drawn and always hilarious, this comic adaptation of the Man of La Mancha's misadventures remains true to the anarchic spirit of Cervantes' novel. A treat for fans and a great intro for young readers. — Charles Bottomley
More than 400 years ago, Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes (1547–1616) sent his irrepressible optimist of a hero out to tilt at windmills—and Don Quixote and his philosophical squire, Sancho Panza, still remain among the world’s most popular and entertaining figures, as well as the archetypes for the tall, thin straight man and his short, stocky comic sidekick. In this terrific adaptation of the Cervantes classic, Rob Davis uses innovative paneling and an interesting color palette to bring the Knight-Errant to life. This is sequential storytelling and art at its finest, as we follow Don Quixote on his search for adventure and chivalrous quests—and he will not be defeated by such foes as logic, propriety, or sanity.
