The complete Don Quixote by Rob Davis( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 437 libraries worldwide
"More than 400 years ago, Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) sent his irrepressible optimist of a hero out to tilt at windmills-- and Don Quixote and his philosophical squire, Sancho Panza, still remain among the world's most popular and entertaining figures, as well as the archetypes for the tall, thin straight man and his short, stocky comic sidekick. In this terrific adaptation of the Cervantes classic, Rob Davis uses innovative paneling and an interesting color palette to bring the Knight-Errant to life. This is sequential storytelling and art at its finest, as we follow Don Quixote on his search for adventure and chivalrous quests-- and he will not be defeated by such foes as logic, propriety, or sanity" -- from publisher's web site

As his deathday approaches, he is forced from his routine and strikes out into the unknown--where friendships are tested and authority challenged"--Back cover

"Forget what you know of England, of the "Land of Hope and Glory." Instead, try damp and depressing, and embrace this miserable island for what it is. Our story kicks off in 1976: the country coming apart at its flared corduroy seams, a decade after the Great Train Robbery, when British crime has gone decidedly soft in the middle. Time for a new generation of criminals to rise: a band of snotty-nosed heroes driven by destiny and cheap cider, who will strike fear back into the establishment, put art back into crime and crime back into art, and pull off what will become known as the heist of the century"--

"When rogue figures from famous works of art come to life and escape their frames, it's up to Reggie Riot and the agents of Art Ops to track them down before they wreak havoc on the unsuspecting public. But Reggie has secrets of his own that may affect his ability to interact with living works of art--and he wants no part in the agency his mother ran before him.

The continuation of the "Modern Love" storyline takes the Art Ops team to a fashion show in 1980s New York City that's more than your average catwalk--and they'll go halfway around the world to uncover the truth behind a mysterious poly-blend garment. Plus, Danny Doll's first successful human art experiment astounds the team, leading up to a fateful decision by his wife, Gina"--
