I am reading my way through this entire series and now have only three books left! I was quite looking forward to this volume as I've read London's entire work of fiction. Reading his major novels and famous short stories more than once each. So I am sad to say this graphic adaption was quite a disappointment both for as a Jack London fan and a fan of the Graphic Classics series. The collection doesn't contain adaptations of any of London's novels and I had been expecting a collection of tales of the gold rush, the Arctic North and the sailing seas. There is a sample of each of these but all the other stories go on to show the wide range of genres he actually did write, though personally I'd say his fame and best came from the ones I mentioned. I was especially dismayed not to see "To Build a Fire" in the collection. I found most of the stories present to be just ok or even lacklustre, with some simply weird. Not an enjoyable reading experience for me. As to the art, I have no complaints; we find the usual artists present from Eureka's corral during the early volumes. This book is an odd duck imho, as to my opinions on this series, as I've found the others to be much more superior in reading quality. You may enjoy the content of the book, but don't judge the entire series by this one book alone. ( )
