Another piece for Steven Gettis' cool website where comics artists draw pictures based on literature they like. That's Arturo Perez Reverte, author of The Club Dumas and Alatriste, which is soon to be a movie with Viggo Mortensen. Dark Horse writer/editor Scott Allie put me onto his work a while back, and it's brilliant stuff. Dumas especially perplexes me, as it's two plots running alongside each other that work as one. Gettis has an upcoming book featuring many of the works there. It's interesting to see what authors comics people find inspirational, and watching some struggle to not make them Batman.
