Daily Graphic Novel Recommendation 193

The Complete Don Quixote

by Rob Davis Genre notes: adaptation, social commentary, absurd adventure 296 pages
ISBN: 1906838658 (Amazon)

Davis may be the perfect person to illustrate an adaptation of Cervantes' classic. Timeless is usually a wholly unremarkable adjective, but Don Quixote is funny, raucous, ridiculous, still on-point in all kinds of its social observations, and basically does every meta- and fourth-wall-busting trick centuries before you thought people invented the idea. Rob Davis' drawings of the errant knight-errant (and squire) are deeply reminiscent of Picasso's and so maintain a certain comic gravitas.

3 Stars = Good
2 Stars = Ok
