Moby Dick part 1

This adaptation of Moby Dick features some spectacular art by Look and Learn regular Bill Baker, returning him to the ocean setting he had previously used to superb effect in The Sea Wolf. At only 14 pages, this is actually a fairly short adaptation, as most books were converted to around a dozen or so episodes. Also of note is the fact that this was the second time Moby Dick was adapted in Look and Learn, this 1977 version having been preceded by a 6-part adaptation in 1974, reprinted from Ranger (1966). I'll try to dig that version out at some point as it has some very nice Franco Caprioli artwork.

In the meantime, here's Bill Baker's Moby Dick...
