SKU: 16958 Category:


Marvel Illustrated Premiere HC Man In The Iron Mask – Written by ROY THOMAS (based on the novel by ALEXANDER DUMAS). Penciled by HUGO PETRUS. Cover by MARKO DJURDJEVIC. Alexander Dumas’ brilliant follow-up to The Three Musketeers, brought to vivid life as only Roy Thomas and Hugo Petrus can! Deep inside the French prison known as the Bastille resides prisoner number 12, Philippe…who is none other than the twin brother of King Louis XIV. He was incarcerated to prevent him from setting off a civil war in his quest for the kingship itself. But there are forces who will work tirelessly to free this man in the iron mask – and put Philippe on the throne! It’s an adaptation that will draw you in with political intrigue so timely it will shock you. 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.Collecting MARVEL ILLUSTRATED: THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK #1-6. 152 pages.
