Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Herman Melvilles classic tale of Ishmael, Captain Ahab, and the White Whale comes to life through stark drawings in this graphic novel adaptation. Ishmael, a young merchant marine, decides to embark with his friend Queequeg on a voyage on the whaling ship the Pequod, helmed by Captain Ahab. They soon discover that the strange captain's true mission is to find and kill Moby Dick, a great white whale who tore off Ahabs leg. Ahabs quest for revenge, a quintessential case of man against nature and good against evil, remains an enduring story that has captivated readers for generations. In this edition, Denis Deprezs haunting graphics set a dark, menacing tone for the narrative.


La historia clásica de Herman Melville de Ismael, el capitán Ahab y la ballena blanca cobra vida a través de dibujos severos en esta adaptación gráfica. Ismael, un joven marino mercante, decide embarcarse junto con su amigo Queequeg en un viaje en el barco ballenero Pequod, dirigido por el capitán Ahab. Pronto descubren que la verdadera misión del extraño capitán es encontrar y matar a Moby Dick, una gran ballena blanca que le arrancó la pierna a Ahab. Su búsqueda de venganza, un caso por excelencia del hombre contra la naturaleza y del bien contra el mal, sigue siendo una historia perdurable que ha cautivado a los lectores por generaciones. En esta edición, los gráficos inquietantes de Denis Deprez crean un tono oscuro y amenazante para la narrativa.
