Robert Louis Stevenson's riveting tale has grown increasingly influential over the years; serving as the basis for such popular portrayals of piracy as one-legged sailors with parrots on their shoulders, treasure maps where an "X" marks the spot, to the specific style we think of when imagining pirates speak. David Chauvel's faithful adaptation combined with Fred Simon's vibrant art truly captures the excitement experienced by readers both old and young alike that this classic has invoked for so many years
David Chauvel began working in comics in the 1990's, writing the French Sci-Fi comic strip Rails, where he first collaborated with Treasure Island artist Fred Simon. Since then, he has gone on to write over 15 different titles for Editions Delcourt including the adaptation of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Fred Simon is a founding member of the art studio Psurde in France, where he lives and works. He frequently collaborates with David Chauvel, illustrating Rails, Treasure Island, and Le Poisson Clown for Editions Delcourt.
