From the Inside Flap
News reports tell of a gigantic monster roaming the high seas at incredible speed. Professor Aronnax is brought in to investigate--and finds himself imprisoned under the sea! Who is the mysterious Captain Nemo who has sworn never to set foot on land? Will Aronnax and his friends ever escape from their amazing journey beneath the waves?
This new graphic novel version brings Jules Verne's classic adventure story vividly to life.
In this pioneering, nineteenth-century science fiction novel, the brilliant but strange Captain Nemo has designed a gigantic submarine, which he now captains. With his crew, he uses his submarine, the Nautilus,
as a weapon of vengeance against the civilization that has rejected and exiled him. But has Nemo met his match in the formidable Professor Aronnax?
