Miguel de Cervantes, Rob Davis
In a sleepy village, a retired gentleman is consumed with tales of chivalry. Seeing no impediments, such as logic, propriety or sanity, to fulfilling his dreams, this would-be hero reinvents himself as the Knight-Errant, Don Quixote. He sets out across the arid open country in search of adventures accompanied only his dim-witted squire, Sancho Panza.
Miguel de Cervantes is the original author of Don Quixote, widely considered to be a cornerstone of Western literature and regarded by many as both the first example of the modern novel and the most famous book of Spanish origin. // Rob Davis began his career self-publishing the comic SLANG. He is best known for reinventing Roy of the Rovers and for drawing Judge Dredd (Rebellion). He has written and illustrated Doctor Who (Panini) and adapted H.P. Lovecraft's "The Dunwich Horror" for The Lovecraft Anthology Vol. 1 (SelfMadeHero). The first volume of his graphic novel adaptation of Don Quixote was shortlisted at the British Comic Awards. He is also the editor of the award-winning collaborative comic anthology Nelson.
