Classics Illustrated (1990) #7
Set during the tumultuous years following Napoleon's exile from France, The Count of Monte Cristo remains one of the most thrilling adventure stories of all time. The popular melodrama - Edmond Dantes' betrayal, his captivity, his discovery of a hidden treasure, and his painstakingly wrought revenge - is a masterpiece of suspense, intrigue and romance. Dan Spiegle's dramatic illustrations evoke the excitement of this irresistible tale, and convey the turbulence of life in Alexander Dumas' 19th century France.
