About The Author

Alexandre Dumas (24 July 1802 – 5 December 1870) was an eccentric and wildly successful French writer. He is best known for his tales of high adventure, such as "The Three Musketeers" and "The Count of Monte Cristo". He is one of the most widely read French authors in the world.

The American comics artist KEN BATTLEFIELD worked mainly for Wow Comics in the 1940s. There, he illustrated stories such as 'Destroy the Voskay Dam', 'The Rescue of Major Cambon', 'To Save the Suez Canal' and 'The Nazi Big Bertha', all featuring the character 'Rick O'Shay'. He also worked as a penciler on 'The Scarab' (Exciting Comics) and 'The Devil's Dagger' (Master Comics). For the Classics Illustrated series, he redrew the comic adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' 'The Man in the Iron Mask' for the reprint.
