I found the cover of this book quite intriguing. Many of the interior illustration were equally as good but I found a few that I did not enjoy as much. I’m sorry to say that the story was a bit difficult for me to follow. I know that story of Captain Nemo but I am not so well informed on the life of Jules Verne, so I don’t know if it was the story that was hard to follow or that because of my limited knowledge of Verne, it was me. What I recommend is, if you are not too familiar with the life of Jules Verne, that you read the notes at the end of the book first. This may help you better understand the graphic novel much better.
