Overview

Four fascinating tales by The Brothers Grimm come alive in these bold new comics adaptations by three incredible graphic novelists. This edition of CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED features both the well-loved tales of Hansel and Gretel’s trip to the Witch’s Gingerbread House and the Valiant Little Tailor’s thrilling encounter with Giants, as well as the lesser known tales of the Boy Who Wanted to Learn What Fear Was who stays in a haunted castle and a boy’s quest to snatch the Devil’s Three Golden Hairs. Over the years, many elements from the original versions of these stories have either been omitted or blandly changed. These adaptations strive to restore all of the excitement, magic, and thrills of the original classic tales, in a tasteful and thoughtful manner.

Meet the Author

Pierre Lavaud (a.k.a. Mazan) studied Plastic Arts and Fine Arts before he made his comics debut in 1990. His first work can be found in the first volume of Delcourt’s Children of the Nile, as well as in several German periodicals. That same year, Mazan took on The Winter of the World, a series published by Delcourt until 1995. In late 1996 and for the same publisher, he created The Brave Little Tailor, a comic adaptation of a tale by the Brothers Grimm, which appears in Papercutz’ Classics Illustrated Deluxe #2: “Tales from the Brothers Grimm.” Continuing to work in the young adult genre, Mazan completed an adaptation of the Brothers Grimm’s Learning to Shiver in 1998, which also appears in Classics Illustrated Deluxe #2.

Mazan continued to work for Delcourt following his Grimm’s Tales adaptations, and completed Philbert: The Pig’s All Good in 2000. A second volume of this title followed in 2004. The following year, he illustrated the first volume in the widely popular Donjon Monstres series from a script by Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar. He also contributed to the pocket book The Original and created a series of comic strips of The Dwarves Garden for Le Cycliste. Mazan is one of the founding members of the Workshop Sanzot, a studio based in Angoulême where he lives and works today.

Philippe Petit is not the same Philippe Petit who performed a high-wire tightrope walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974. Philippe Petit of Delcourt was born on June 17, 1966 in Angers, France, about 200 miles Southwest of Paris. After completing his baccalauréat (a test required for all French students at the end of high school), Petit began work at the Museum of Fine Arts of Angoulême where he remained until 1992. He moved on to work as an illustrator for various French fan magazines and drew a short story in Children of the Nile, published by Delcourt. He worked for five years in various animation positions before adapting Hansel and Gretel for Delcourt, which appears in Papercutz’ Tales from the Bothers Grimm. He lives in France and continues to work in graphic novels and animation.

Cécile Chicault worked as a drawing teacher after completing her art studies. She quit teaching after the birth of her daughter and started drawing comics and studying fine arts at the Museum of Fine Arts of Angoulême. She joined the Mazan’s Workshop Sanzot, where she worked together with Mazan, Isabelle Dethan, and Jean-Luc Lover. Chicault was later commissioned to complete several projects for various communications companies. Her first comic was the Grimm adaptation of the Brothers Grimm’s The Devil’s Three Golden Hairs, which appeared in the collection Youth from Delcourt in 1999. She began the Zélie series in 2000, three different volumes of which have subsequently been published in France, where she continues to live and work.
