It's been a very long time since I've read the original story so can't really compare, but I do love Jack London. This is an especially fine tale. Dark and morbid, looking into the deepest blackest part of man's soul while another holds onto his beliefs come what may, however bleak. Riff Reb's art is outstanding and made reading this tale a delight. If you haven't read the original this will certainly have you looking for it and indeed it's whetted my desire for a re-read. Gorgeous volume, fantastic tale of the sea! This is a prime example of why one would/should read graphic retellings of the classics! ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"When the ferry the intellectual Humphrey van Weyden is aboard sinks off of the San Francisco Bay, he drifts in the ocean until a seal-hunting schooner, under the command of hardened sailor Wolf Larsen, rescues him. Wolf Larsen is an incredibly strong brute and a hedonist who sees no value in life but is also educated--he likes that Humphrey (or "Hump") is someone he can have meaningful conversations with, and decides to let him stay. This rescue comes with a catch, however--the boat is not returning to port soon. If van Weyden wants to stay onboard he must become a cabin boy and do chores on the ship, while he avoids angering the murderous crew. Furthermore, if he's going to survive this trip, van Weyden must keep the crew from killing their captain, and the captain from tossing him overboard."--Publisher's website.… (more)
