Graphic Novels #7 “Around the World in 80 days” by Jules Verne Adapted by Loïc dauvillier Aude Soleilhac, artist.

From London to Calcutta to New York and Back! The Classics Illustrated name and logo is © 2011 First Classics, Inc.

Jules Verne’s adventure story about a wager to circumvent the globe in 80 days was so popular when it was first published that it spawned several real-life copycats who tried to replicate the adventures of Phileas Fogg and his valet Passepartout. Artist Aude Soleilhac’s vibrant and detailed work captures the numerous people and places encountered in Verne’s epic tale, which still manages to elicit wonder and excitement in readers more than 125 years after it was first published.

mArKeTING • CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED is one of the most recognized names in comics. It has sold over 200 million copies of hundreds of titles of comicbook adaptations of stories by the World’s Greatest Authors.

The island of Mata Nui was once a paradise – until the entity known as Makuta arrived, transforming it into a land of darkness and evil. The natives, called Tohunga, and their leaders, the Turaga, have waited and hoped for heroes who would conquer Makuta and save their home. Now their waiting has come to an end. Six mighty warriors, known as Toa, have arrived on Mata Nui. Each controls a force of nature – fire, air, earth, water, stone, ice. But to triumph over Makuta, they must gather the Kanohi Masks of Power, which give them greater skills, abilities, and wisdom. The more masks they collect, the more powerful the Toa become.

Throughout the years, generations have delighted in Stevenson’s terrifying tale of Dr. Henry Jekyll, the scientist who becomes transformed by a drug into Mr. Edward Hyde, a murderous monster. But Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is more than a simple horror story; a finely crafted tale of intrigue, it was a forerunner of the modern mystery novel. On another level, it is also a remarkable examination of the conflicts that bedevil the human spirit.
