"LES AVENTURES DE SIR ARTHUR GORDON PYM" /
"A NARRATIVA DE SIR ARTHUR GORDON PYM"
(IN COLOR w/ English Translation / Part 2)
The Société Parisienne d'Édition or SPE, was a French publisher that existed under various names from the end of the 19th Century.
MONDIAL AVENTURES ("World Adventures") was their own version of Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED. The series ran 30 titles from 1954 to 1959, including the works of such notable writers as Fenimore Cooper, Victor Hugo, Alexandre Dumas and Robert Louis Stevenson; oddly enough, especially given it was a French company, they didn't include Jules Verne in their run. However, they did one story by Edgar Allan Poe-- his ONLY full-length novel!
The comic, created in France in 1955, was delayed; it was published in Brazil in 1958, a year before it finally appeared in France in 1959!
