Two Christmas classics in a gorgeous graphic novel retelling! You may know the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future from Charles Dickens' beloved tale, A Christmas Carol, but did you know this is not Dickens' only ghost story? This edition of Classics Illustrated Deluxe presents A Christmas Carol together with another one of Dickens' treasures, Mugby Junction, which also features elements of the supernatural and a protagonist to whom his future is revealed. Estelle Meyrand's Expressionist artwork brings a rich palette and dynamism to these two classic Christmas tales by one of the world's greatest authors.
