Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Graffex" is a new series of illustrated literary classics retold for young readers. "The Man in the Iron Mask" is the last instalment of the adventures of the famous musketeers, Athos, Aramis, Porthos and D'Artagnan. They become involved in a plot to depose King Louis XIV and replace him with his secret twin brother, but the plot goes horribly wrong and leads to an exciting showdown where our heroes must fight for their lives against terrible odds. This classic story is presented as an exciting and fast-paced graphic novel which remains faithful to Dumas' original text - unlike the many later film versions.Specially commissioned full-colour artwork brings excitement and atmosphere to this classic tale. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling. There is a detailed timeline of important events during Dumas' lifetime, and notes on the historical characters who appear in the novel. Information about Dumas' life and work - including a list of film and TV adaptations - is provided to encourage young readers to explore other works by this perennially popular author.
