Product Details


In this slender graphic adaptation of Melville’s magnum opus, Ishmael, Queequeg and the rest of the uniformly burly, steely-eyed whalers are strong presences in Singh’s art — at least until their pale, gargantuan nemesis shows up to scatter them and their ship as flotsam across the waves. . . . The biographical introduction and closing pages on whaling ships and sperm whales provide a nice veneer of historical context. — Kirkus Reviews

“I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature.” — Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians) 

“Stahlberg and Singh understand that the kids of today don’t want to be talked down to. . . . The comic reads as a full story; there isn’t really much that seems as if it’s missing.  Lalit Kumar Singh can stand up to any artist working in the Big Two today. He has a style reminiscent of Andy Kubert, or even, dare I say, early Marc Silvestri. The angular, realistic style expertly captures the dark nature of the story without going so dark as to possibly turn off younger readers. . . . If you have a kid whom you’d like to get into reading comics, and if you have a kid whom you’d like to get into classic literature, Moby Dick comes highly recommended.” — The Comics Cube!

“Campfire Graphics has condensed [Melville’s original work] to a mere 88 richly illustrated pages. And done quite a decent job too…. [Condensing] helps the action packed story move along at a brisk pace.” — Emma, No Flying No Tights
