Review:

"I "highly recommend" Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."-- Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

About the Author:

Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins was born February 9th 1863 in London, England. As the youngest child of Reverend Edwards Hawkins, Anthony would attend the school at which his father was headmaster – St John’s Foundation School for the Sons of Poor Clergy. Anthony then went on to study at Marlborough College, and showed his interest in literature by becoming the editor of its newspaper The Malburian. Whilst attending Balliol College, Anthony developed an interest in law and also began to write fiction. By 1890, Anthony began to publish a series of novels which began that same year with the satire A Man of Mark, followed in 1891 by Father Stafford. However, Anthony’s greatest success would come in 1894 with the publication of The Prisoner of Zenda – a romantic adventure set in the mythical kingdom of Ruritania. The novel was so admired that Anthony published a sequel titled Rupert of Hentzau four years later. Anthony’s later work was not to be as lauded as his masterpiece The Prisoner of Zenda, but he would be financially successful due to film rights sales and reprints of his work. During World War I he decided to work for the Ministry of Information to counteract German propaganda, Anthony would spend a great deal of time writing pamphlets aimed at discouraging the German war effort.

Hailing from New Delhi, India, Lalit maintained a professional association with his passion of illustration all throughout his days at graduate school where he acquired a degree in commerce. A seasoned artist with seven years of experience to his credit, Lalit has been an avid comics fan right from his childhood and had always wanted to be associated with the universe. Besides art, he also harbours a keen interest in science and claims what harbours on addiction to online encyclopaedias. His work can be seen on a number of titles from Campfire, which include Prisoner of Zenda and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
