“All for one, one for all”! Presenting the action-packed adventure from Alexandre Dumas in a special longer-format Classics Illustrated Deluxe. Alexandre Dumas’s novel is one of the most celebrated literary works of the last 200 years, making it a great fit for Classics Illustrated Deluxe. Veteran writer and editor Jean David Morvan worked closely with breakout artist Rubén to capture the excitement and action of the story of D’Argatan and the Musketeers, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, which took three years to complete. The longer length and depth of this Classics Illustrated Deluxe volume matches the epic proportions of Dumas’s historic novel.
As a child, Rubén loved two things: drawing and fighting with wooden swords. Fortunately, he chose to work on paper. He took his first drawing lessons in the small village where he lived with his parents before joining the School of Design at Joso Barcelona. During this period he illustrated short stories for various Spanish magazines, one of which was noticed by Jean David Morvan. Morvan contacted Rubén which led to their collaboration on “Jolly Ringworm” and “The Three Musketeers.”
Jean David Morvan’s work was seen previously in Classics Illustrated Deluxe #4 “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.” A writer and editor for Editions Delcourt, Morvan is known for his faithful adaptations of classic novels and attention to literary detail.
