Classics Illustrated Deluxe (11)

It's been a very long time since I've read the original story so can't really compare, but I do love Jack London. This is an especially fine tale. Dark and morbid, looking into the deepest blackest part of man's soul while another holds onto his beliefs come what may, however bleak. Riff Reb's art is outstanding and made reading this tale a delight. If you haven't read the original this will certainly have you looking for it and indeed it's whetted my desire for a re-read. Gorgeous volume, fantastic tale of the sea! This is a prime example of why one would/should read graphic retellings of the classics!
