Moby Dick

Will Eisner. Nantier Beall Minoustchine Publishing, $15.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-1-56163-293-0

Comic book aficionados will appreciate master Will Eisner's latest adaptation, Moby Dick. It may not begin, ""Call me Ishmael,"" but the story otherwise remains true to Herman Melville's classic, with Queequeg, Ahab and the great white whale all making their entrances on cue. The cartoon panels that chronicle the final showdown between the captain and the giant fish are particularly spectacular. (Oct.)
