Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: A Graphic Novel by Carl Bowen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Published July 1st 2014 by Capstone Press
Very well done graphic novel adaptation for young people. Indeed an enjoyable read! As someone quite familiar with the original I found this a good representation of the story. Of course, the themes were not covered to any depth but all the main plot points were covered and we come away from it feeling the wonder of the ocean world and a certain sadness for Captain Nemo himself. The illustration is excellent and this will make a perfect introduction to the novel as well as a must for the school library.
