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.
