2.0 out of 5 stars An unexciting matter-of-fact adaptation
This 58-page comic-book adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic novel is an unexciting and matter-of-fact one, at least it was for me. The cartoony artwork didn’t help either, as it made most of the characters look unfeasibly young, and the copious facial hair looked like disguises of some sort, and it made me think of a children’s animated story.

This review is from: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Graphic Revolve) (Graphic Fiction: Graphic Revolve) (Paperback)
This 58-page comic-book adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic novel is an unexciting and matter-of-fact one, at least it was for me. The cartoony artwork didn’t help either, as it made most of the characters look unfeasibly young, and the copious facial hair looked like disguises of some sort, and it made me think of a children’s animated story. The ending was extremely dull, as the main characters simply got in a boat and sailed away from the Nautilus as it continued on its journey. There really was little sense of drama or adventure for me.

Being a ‘junior’ book, it contains a few pages of ‘educational’ material: a short biography of Jules Verne as well as of the modern scripter, a glossary, two pages of facts on the history of submarines, and two pages of Discussion Questions and Writing Prompts, to check up on the readers’ creative imagination.
