Reseña del editor

Four fascinating tales by The Brothers Grimm come alive in these bold new comics adaptations by three incredible graphic novelists. This edition of "Classics Illustrated" features both the well-loved tales of Hansel and Gretel's trip to the Witch's Gingerbread House and the Valiant Little Tailor's thrilling encounter with Giants, as well as the lesser known tales of the "Boy Who Wanted to Learn What Fear Was" who stays in a haunted castle and a boy's quest to snatch the Devil's Three Golden Hairs. Over the years, many elements from the original versions of these stories have either been omitted or blandly changed. These adaptations strive to restore all of the excitement, magic, and thrills of the original classic tales, in a tasteful and thoughtful manner.

Biografía del autor

Pierre Lavaud (a.k.a. Mazan) studied Plastic Arts and Fine Arts before he made his comics debut in 1990. His first work can be found in the first volume of Delcourt's "Children of the Nile, "as well as in several German periodicals. That same year, Mazan took on "The Winter of the World," a series published by Delcourt until 1995. In late 1996 and for the same publisher, he created "The Brave Little Tailor," a comic adaptation of a tale by the Brothers Grimm, which appears in Papercutz' Classics Illustrated Deluxe #2: "Tales from the Brothers Grimm." Continuing to work in the young adult genre, Mazan completed an adaptation of the Brothers Grimm's "Learning to Shiver "in 1998," "which also appears in Classics Illustrated Deluxe #2. Mazan continued to work for Delcourt following his Grimm's Tales adaptations, and completed "Philbert: The Pig's All Good" in 2000. A second volume of this title followed in 2004. The following year, he illustrated the first volume in the widely popular "Donjon Monstres "series from a script by Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar. He also contributed to the pocket book "The Original" and created a series of comic strips of "The Dwarves Garden" for "Le Cycliste." Mazan is one of the founding members of the Workshop Sanzot, a studio based in Angouleme where he lives and works today.Philippe Petit is not the same Philippe Petit who performed a high-wire tightrope walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974. Philippe Petit of Delcourt was born on June 17, 1966 in Angers, France, about 200 miles Southwest of Paris. After completing his baccalaureat (a test required for all French students at the end of high school), Petit began work at the Museum of Fine Arts of Angouleme where he remained until 1992. He moved on to work as an illustrator for various French fan magazines and drew a short story in "Children of the Nile," published by Delcourt. He worked for five years in various animation positions before adapting "Hansel and Gretel" for Delcourt, which appears in Papercutz' "Tales from the Bothers Grimm." He lives in France and continues to work in graphic novels and animation.Cecile Chicault worked as a drawing teacher after completing her art studies. She quit teaching after the birth of her daughter and started drawing comics and studying fine arts at the Museum of Fine Arts of Angouleme. She joined the Mazan's Workshop Sanzot, where she worked together with Mazan, Isabelle Dethan, and Jean-Luc Lover. Chicault was later commissioned to complete several projects for various communications companies. Her first comic was the Grimm adaptation of the Brothers Grimm's "The Devil's Three Golden Hairs," which appeared in the collection "Youth" from Delcourt in 1999. She began the "Zelie "series in 2000, three different volumes of which have subsequently been published in France, where she continues to live and work."

Another classy "Classic" from Papercutz 24 de noviembre de 2008
Por Frank J. Konopka - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
I certainly hope that this new series of Classics Illustrated Deluxe volumes becomes a best seller, for I would hate to see this series go the way of the Marvel and First titles (although the First boooks are being brought back by this series, without the "Deluxe " label, and in their original shorter amount of pages). The artistry is excellent and goes quite well with the tales. Of course, the Grimm originals were very "grim", but these 4 tales, even though a bit goose-pimply, do not rise (or sink) to the grotesque and bloody level of the original tales. I'm sure that was done so as not to unnecessarily frighten younger readers, but as a 62 year old who has read the originals, I would have liked the more bloody ones (probably a flaw in my character). Anyway, I am looking forward eagerly to every new Deluxe issue.

Tales From the Brothers Grimm

Ahh, what fairy tales really were!

Far from the sweet, innocent Disney versions our children have become accustomed to, the Grimm Brothers collected moral tales with a lesson. Papercutz, under their Classics Illustrated licensed line, give us "Learning How To Shudder", "The Valiant Little Tailor", "Devil With the Three Golden Hairs", and "Hansel and Gretel".

What I like about these 1996-2006 adaptations is the classical appearance of the projects. The art by Mazan, Cecile Chicault, and Philip Petit is outstanding. Textwise, if readers have not picked up the Grimm Tales and read translations, this may be the first time the `real' stories are available to the graphically oriented public. Hansel and Gretel is not the Bugs Bunny cartoon we remember, the wicked step mother dies before the children come home. The "Devil" is a tale of deception, almost like Adam and Eve. The really interesting thing about this story is that the King who wanted the young man who escaped death himself finds slavery!

"Learning How To Shudder" is a story of courage. "The Valiant Little Tailor" is our modern "Brave Little Tailor" in more detail. Courage and self confidence is the key to this story.

The Papercutz line is exceptional and deserves to be in every home, school, and library. If yours doesn't have one, make sure they do.

Thanks for a classy book Mr Nantier.
Would have picked some different tales, but a nice intro to Grimm 30 de octubre de 2015
Por Stuart Dunn - Publicado en Amazon.com

Tales from the Brothers Grimm is a 130 page hardcover graphic novel. It contains four stories from Grimm's Fairy Tales - Hansel and Gretel, Learning How to Shudder, The Devil and the Three Golden Hairs, and The Valiant Little Tailor. The first and last story are one that most readers know very well, but The Devil and Three Golden Hairs proved to be most interesting to me. In this story a poor family has a baby boy born with his caul on him. This is apparently very rare, and as part of the story, it was said that since he was born with his caul, he would marry the daughter of the king. The king heard of this and did not like it, so he bought the child from the parents under the premise of raising him in the castle. Instead he tossed the boy in the river. The boy was found by some millers, and years later the king discovered he was still alive, so he tried to get him killed again. Again, his plan is thwarted and the boy marries the princess. The king therefore sent him on an errand to Hell to return with three of the devil's golden hairs. I won't spoil the ending for you, but let's just say the king got what was coming to him. This is a nice introduction to Grimm's Fairy Tales, and one that might appeal to the teenage crowd or the comic book crowd. The illustrations were not as dark as I would have hoped, and I would have possibly picked some different tales than "Learning How to Shudder," but it's not a bad book.
Four Tales in One Book 12 de abril de 2012
Por Ilana Eisenhart - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
This is a nicely designed book containing four Grimm Brothers stories on glossy pages. The stories are:

Hansel and Gretel
Learning How to Shudder
The Devil and the Three Golden Hairs
The Valiant Little Tailor

I had only heard of Hansel and Gretel and The Valient Little Tailor. I look forward to reading the other two stories. The last pages of the book contain a brief history of the Classics Illustrated series including pictures of some of the various covers. It also includes a 2-page preview of the Classics Illustrated Great Expectations.

My only criticism of this book is the artwork. While it is creative and tells the story, it is not done in exactly the kind of style that I like. I prefer more classic illustrations and this artwork is more like something you would see in a take-off in Mad magazine. Don't get me wrong, I love Mad magazine, but not for fairy tales. But that is a personal preference, others might disagree. Also, the cover artwork is not the same as the cover shown on Amazon.
