20000 leagues -001Last week, we posted the battle with the giant squid from the Moby Books Illustrated Classics Edition of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea.

Our reader Martin commented that he remembers his favorite illustration in the book, by the talented comic book artist Pablo Marcos. On this page, our narrator reads of the island of Ceylon. He has a fantastic vision of sharks swarming around his head! Yes! Martin, here’s the iullustration you requested, below. In our gallery you will find the complete Chapter 9: Pearls and Sharks. It’s also got a bad-ass page of Captain Nemo battling a shark!
