A worthwhile effort of a graphic novel adaptation of the classic hidalgo. 2011 has seen already two graphic adaptations of the immortal novel conceived by Cervantes. In this case we owe the effort to British writer and artist Rob Davis (the second one is the adaptation for young readers done by Lloyd S. Wagner, a writer from the US, who had as collaborators Richard Kohlrus and Vinod Kumar for the illustrations). The adaptation by Rob Davis (Part I of Don Quixote) is a more complete, lengthy and detailed work, getting into the philosophical intricacies of the plot with a severe, realistic style of drawing that suits the narration very well. He incorporates Cervantes into the story as a narrator, unseen behind prison bars, to clarify and amplify on developments, a device that adds interest and scope to the graphic adaptation. Davis has been able to add a modern humourous touch to the dialogue which aptly lightens and speeds the reading. Hopefully, volume 2, which corresponds to Part II of Don Quixote, will be published soon.

Note: Part II was published in 2013 (ISBN 9781906838614) ( )
