True to the ACTUAL novelApril 21 2011
- Published on Amazon.com
This graphic novel is one of the few adaptations I've seen that is actually faithful to the book. It is heartening to finally find that someone cares enough to be true to Dumas' story. The last one I've seen is the "Classics Illustrated" comic book.
The Leonardo DiCarprio movie is a travesty, on so many levels, for anyone who loves "The Man in the Iron Mask." I've looked at many film versions, and none of them match the deference to the original text as this graphic novel does.
If you want to experience this classic story in a colorful, graphic medium, I unreservedly recommend this.
Thank you, Marvel and Roy Thomas, for providing me with this quality addition to my Dumas shelf.
