Don Quixote was, and still is, a literary classic. ‘Timeless’ is a very strong word but in cases such as this it is well deserved. A lot could go wrong with a graphic novel of such a historical work but all attempts to modernise or simplify the piece have been rejected. Davis is extremely faithful to the spirit and the message and maintains the conceit that this is a retelling of actual events rather than a fiction.
The art, layout and colouration is bold and timeless. It appears hand drawn and is coloured using a reduced palette making the work seem older than it actually is. As the tale spins off into sub-plots the art style changes assisting the differentiation in narrative most appropriately.
