Well-researched detail highlights the inside art by DC Comics vet Nodel. The outstanding painted cover by Poch is reproduced here from the original art! The epic tale of Egyptian queen Cleopatra, newly created by CI just in time for the famous 1964 film with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. From her affairs with Caesar and Marc Antony to her eventual suicide when Roman soldiers stormed her palace...

This tells her amazing story with strong artwork and historically accurate episodes. A must for fans of Egyptology and classic comic action. Jack Kirby originally drew the proposed cover, but a change of art directors resulted in his vision being dropped and this new one used. This and other interesting details about the history of this issue are all in an illustrated 2-page overview by William Jones, author of Classics Illustrated: A Cultural History.
