Jules Verne's masterpiece is an epic tome about a well intentioned, driven but ultimately doomed man and his altruistic cause. The tale relates how he tried to carry out those goals by way of the wonderful but terrible creation, the Nautilus.
This adaptation may seem brief for those who loved the book "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea", however, this book seamlessly weaves some of the most memorable parts of that book into a beautifully written and graphic narrative that is among the best graphic novel adaptations ever created. All the humanity and wonder is intact and poignantly so.
This is clearly a labor of love and appreciation for the the book and Jules Verne's visionary story.
Gary Gianni's art and story are well worth looking into because he does justice to the term that a picture is worth a thousand words.
This new edition has subtle color work provided by Jim and Ruth Keegan. Both are fellow illustrators in the their own right on the Del Rey editions of the Robert E. Howard (Conan, Kull, Solomon Kane and Bran Mak Morn and others) anthology series.
Two bonuses in this edition are the introduction by Ray Bradbury (one of his best to date) as well as Gary Gianni illustrating the straight prose tale by H. G. Wells titled "Sea Raiders".
This book is another in a line of beautiful books released by Flesk Publications.
