Flesk Publications is proud to present a graphic novelization of Jules Verne's Twenty- Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by the celebrated illustrator and writer of books, comics, and comic strips, Gary Gianni. The Verne novel, which has been adapted into films and illustrated in numerous forms, receives an exciting fresh visual approach allowing the reader to experience the story anew. A life-long fan of Verne's novel, Gianni proves the perfect foil for this visually stunning recreation, penned by the "Father of Science Fiction." Gianni's adaptation preserves the sense of wondrous adventure, while sacrificing nothing by way of plot or the finer nuances of character. This finely distilled narrative combines skillfully rendered depictions of the men and the machines they command. Their encounters with astounding marvels and terrible monsters, above and below the waves, create a rich and rewarding reading experience unlike any other. This oversized, hardbound volume will also include the full text of The Sea Raiders, a short story by H.G. Wells, accompanied by ten original illustrations created for this edition by Gianni. Jim & Ruth Keegan supply the colors. Jules Verne's Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea promises to be a book which will be treasured for years to come by readers of all ages.
