One of the best-drawn Classics ever, by EC veterans Crandall and Evans! The classic tale of persecution, love, tragedy and justice. The story opens in 1482, during the French Renaissance, the day of the Festival of Fools in Paris. Quasimodo the deformed bell ringer is introduced as the "Pope of Fools," victim of the taunts of the crowd. Esmeralda, a beautiful 16-year-old gypsy girl with a kind heart offers Quasimodo some water but then shortly after is accused of attempted murder.

Quasimodo saves her being hanged and carries her into the belfry of the cathedral, under the law of sanctuary. He then battles the town villains to keep her safe. Cover art by Gerald McCann and interior art by Reed Crandall and George Evans. Reprints Classics Illustrated #18. In 1960 this classic in the series was newly written by Al Sundel and newly drawn by two of the finest artists in comics. They outdid themselves, as commentator William Jones points out in his outstanding, highly detailed overview of the comics's history: "...superbly rendered...detailed historical framework were equisitely drawn...combined to make the redesigned Hunchback one of the best books in the series."

This popular issue saw seven printings from 1960 to 1970! All the various covers, six of them, are included in Jones' commentary, in full color, including the famed "Gina Lollobrigida" painted cover of 1957.
