    I could now, in all honesty, say that I have read Moby Dick. Well, the comic book version, published at a time a comic book sold for fifteen cents, 1943. Comic book classics plus Cliff Notes is all that got my generation through college English, I think. All in all, not bad. Forty-eight color pages (reduced from sixty-four, to conserve paper during the war). I especially loved seeing Ahab's wildly manic face. I could now, in all honesty, say that I have read Moby Dick.

    An epic read about the world of New England whaling, and American life at the time, but also a portrait of how an obsessive quest for revenge can drive someone (Capt. Ahab) to throw caution to the wind and risk the lives of others who depended on him to get home safely to their homes and families. Amazing diversity for the day with multiple Africans and even a cannibal as part of the crew. The white whale (Moby Dick) -- thought to be demon-possessed at the time -- in hindsight gives a window int An epic read about the world of New England whaling, and American life at the time, but also a portrait of how an obsessive quest for revenge can drive someone (Capt. Ahab) to throw caution to the wind and risk the lives of others who depended on him to get home safely to their homes and families. Amazing diversity for the day with multiple Africans and even a cannibal as part of the crew. The white whale (Moby Dick) -- thought to be demon-possessed at the time -- in hindsight gives a window into the true intelligence of whales. Horrific details about whale slaughter and harvesting of the oil included in the story a little hard to take especially the draining of the oil from the head. A little stilted to read as includes lots of "ye" and "thee" (hence my 4 stars) but an excellent historical interpretation of back in the day. The action and chase kept me and my 12-year-old son engaged in reading it though despite the old speak. The stories of the crew, where they came from, and their superstitions were also interesting. Why read these old stories? Why read the classics? Why bother? They are part of our history and we need to know it. It also gives us an appreciation of just how far we have come as a society as we no longer brutally butcher these magnificent creatures to light our cities and homes. Nice illustrations but black and white.

    Good artwork which can really be enjoyed with the panel zoom feature. A lot of characters are left out, but the spirit of the tale and main storyline remain intact. Very enjoyable and a good introduction to Moby Dick to readers unacquainted with it.

    I read a bunch of these back in the day and loved them. Date read is a guess. The Trajectory thing must be a re-publishing thing. Good job!
