Reason for Reading: I am quickly becoming a fan of this publisher, and I love well-done graphic retellings of classics.I have not read the original "The Three Musketeers", probably because I do not enjoy French literature or historical fiction, especial French Revolution era, but this takes place much earlier than the revolution and while set within the the real time frame of Cardinal Richelieu I was taken with the derring-do and humour of the musketeers. Not having read the original I don't know whether it is supposed to be humorous but the graphic adaptation certainly was and a splendid story as well. If this is as well representative of the original as the other "Campfire Classics" I have read then this graphic adaptation has given me a taste and an urge to want to read the original for the first time in my life. The artwork this time around, compared to the previous "Campfire Classics" I've read is wonderfully original; taking on a cartoonish aspect with overemphasized facial features on all the characters making the simple-minded, heroic and evil apparent just by their looks. I really enjoy this style of cartooning. A fun read!
