Description


Herman Melville's 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 Ahab's leg. Ahab's 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 Deprez's haunting graphics set a dark, menacing tone for the narrative. "La historia clasica de Herman Melville de Ismael, el capitan Ahab y la ballena blanca cobra vida a traves de dibujos severos en esta adaptacion grafica.
