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.
Arguably one of the greatest writers of the Victorian era, Charles Dickens is the author of such literary masterpieces as A Tale of Two Cities (1859), A Christmas Carol (1843), David Copperfield (1850), and The Adventures of Oliver Twist (1839), among many others. Dickens' s indelible characters and timeless stories continue to resonate with readers around the world more than 130 years after his death. Dickens was born in 1812 and died in 1870.
