The Sea Cook strikes again,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Long John Silver Vol.1: Lady Vivian Hastings (Paperback)
It is around 35 years since I read Treasure Island and although this graphic novel doesn't boast to be a sequel it takes some of the characters and atmosphere of the original (blood, the sea, malice, revenge; well, lots really) and crafts a new story in rich graphic format. Reading this has sent me back to reading the original, wow, what a gem that is! My favourite part of the graphic book is where Long John Silver introduces us to his men - Black Blood, the holy man, and so on - they are such wonderful characters, I just knew that this was going to be a real "treasure" from then on.
