Tales from the Brothers Grimm (Classics Illustrated Deluxe Gr) (Inglés) Tapa blanda – abr 2008
Descripción del producto
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."

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.
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.
