Summaries and Reviews
Accompanied by information about Herman Melville, fascinating facts about whales, and a history of the whaling industry, an exciting comic book adaption vividly brings to life the ill-fated voyage of a whaling ship led by the fanatical Captain Ahab, who is searching for the white whale that had crippled him. Simultaneous. description: Product Description:
Killing a sixty-ton sperm whale that could destroy a boat with a flick of its massive tail was no easy task. Whalemen of the early nineteenth century were not just hunters, they were also explorers—sailing on the uncharted sea in search of some of the largest creatures on earth. The most famous whale of all? Moby Dick.
Here are Ishmael, Queequeq, Ahab, and of course, Moby Dick, rendered anew in a dynamic comic book adaptation of one of the greatest American novels ever written. The book also includes information about Herman Melville, facts about whales, and the history of the whaling industry. With all the flare and blaze of Melville’s original story, Moby Dick is sure to intrigue a new generation of readers with this fast-paced and electric portrayal of the famous battle between man and beast.
