Alexander Dumas's "The Count of Monte Cristo" is an adventure story at heart, making Steven Grant and Dan Spiegle excellent choices to adapt this action-packed tale, which translates wonderfully to comics form.

Edmond Dantes, a fugitive wrongly accused of a crime and betrayed by a rival, escapes from prison to embark on a search for treasure. Eventually, Dantes returns to France after creating the new identity of The Count of Monte Cristo in order to exact vengeance on his betrayer. A whirlwind adventure for any young child who follows this epic tale, Grant and Spiegle capture the excitement of this classic story that has remained a best seller for over a hundred years.

I often read these while standing around those circular comic book displays in a neighborhood drugstore. When the owner yelled for me to quit browsing, I’d do my best to remember my place, then pick up the comic the next time I was in the store.

Alexandre Dumas' powerful novel of betrayal and revenge, "The Count of Monte Cristo", gets the graphic novel treatment courtesy of Classics Illustrated and Papercutz. Steven Grant did the adaptation; Dan Spiegle did the artwork. Dumas' original novel is long and rather complicated; this adaptation simplifies the story, but young readers will still need to pay attention to a large cast of characters.

As the story begins, the reader meets Edmund Dantes, former sea captain, formerly engaged to be married to the beautiful Mercedes, but betrayed and falsely imprisoned for years in a remote prison, the Chateau D'If. Dantes gradually loses hope. One day, another prisoner, the aging Abbe Faria, tunnels into his cell. The Abbe befriends Edmund, gives him hope, educates him, and when the time comes, offers him a chance at escape from prison and at a buried treasure on the island of Monte Cristo. Edmund makes a harrowing escape, and is rescued by pirates. He will make his way to Monte Cristo and claim the treasure. Newly wealthy, he will now proceed to his revenge on those who had him imprisoned.

Edmund returns to France as the Count of Monte Cristo, there to set in motion a meticulously planned plot of revenge. One by one, his former betrayers will find that their past crimes have caught up with them. And Edmund Dante will discover that perhaps revenge is not so sweet as he had hoped. Can any good come out of the wheels of misfortune that Edmund has set in motion? Will Dante discover what is really worthwhile in the life that he has taken up?

"The Count of Monte Cristo" is highly recommended as an entertaining story and as a moral lesson on the subject of revenge.

So this is another classic that I have not read the original of first. I never had any intention of reading this original as I did try to read The Three Musketeers and gave it up as a bad job, over the years I've come to simply realize I do like French Literature nor historical fiction set in French history, not even if Charles Dickens writes it. This story was passable reading but it is a very complicated plot with many storylines between various characters going on and I can only imagine the number of cast not included in this graphic adaptation. A silly romance, with over the top devotions, willing to die rather than live without that one special love. It's also a story of revenge, backstabbing, swindling and the past coming back to haunt us. I can't compare to the original but Grant did manage to keep me on my toes with all that was going on with so many characters I never felt lost; while Spiegle is a legendary artist in the field and his art makes for an attractive book. However reading this has not made me want to read the original, anything else by Dumas nor has it changed my opinion of French Lit. in general.

An outstanding graphic novel version of this literary classic, originally published in 1990. Artist Dan Spiegle is a favorite of mine, a multi-decade veteran of the comicbook and news-strip mediums, with a very formal, realistic art style. He has a background in "genre" titles (romance, action, horror, etc.) and was one of the last great masters of the short-form comicbook story, where plots were resolved in four- five- or seven-page episodes. This mastery of concise storytelling serves him well in this brisk, but compelling, adaptation of one of the great French adventure novels -- each page is rich with stylish artwork, full of detail and texture, and pulls you into the next. Definitely recommended. (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain children's book reviews)

This book tries to tell the entire story in a graphic format, but it is a jumble. It would benefit from adding a cast of characters and their relationships at the beginning, for the reader to refer to as these aristocrats flash through the story.

Also, the panels proceed haphazardly across the pages, without a clear way to know whether they are progressing left-to-right or top-down this time. The overlaps are too slight and don't give good directions.

Update: I found the Usborne Young Reading version, illustrated by Victor Tavares. Much more what I was looking for -- the story is clear, the illustrations are good, and my kids LOVE it. The Count of Monte Cristo (Young Reading Series 3)
