The Complete Don Quixote Hardback
by ROB DAVIS
Part of the Eye Classics series
More than 400 years ago, Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) sent his irrepressible optimist of a hero out to tilt at windmills.
Today Don Quixote and his philosophical squire, Sancho Panza, remain among the world's most popular and entertaining figures, as well as being the archetypes for the tall, thin straight man and his short, stocky comic sidekick.
Don Quixote is on a search for adventure and chivalrous quests - and he will not be defeated by such foes as logic, propriety, or sanity.
In this terrific adaptation of the Cervantes classic, Rob Davis uses innovative paneling and exquisite artwork to bring the Knight-Errant to life.
This is sequential storytelling and art at its finest.

Review by sbloom42
It's been 20 years since I've read Don Quixote, so I was due for a refresher. This was the perfect format. The art wasn't ground-breaking, but it was fun, and the story fits the episodic nature of comics perfectly. This is worth the read if you need a Don Quixote refresher, or if you just don't want to tackle it in large novel form.
