Captain Nemo and a re-imagined Nautilus are the stars of the latest graphic novel by François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters. More of an illustrated book than a graphic novel, every other page is a full-page illustration by Schuiten.

This book is in English--translated by Alaxis Press publisher, Stephen D. Smith--and was printed alongside the French edition, at a press in Belgium, under the supervision of the artist François Schuiten.

This edition exudes high quality. Sharply printed on Munken 150 gr. paper, with illustrated endpapers, and beautiful covers.

From the publisher:

In this volume, through a story told with love and respect for the subject by the award-winning author, Benoît Peeters, and brought to life through the imagination and illustrations of legendary Belgian artist, François Schuiten, the creators follow the legendary Captain Nemo, as he awakens from his eternal slumber, only to find himself being transported around the world under the sea aboard a freakish hybrid of Octopus and his infamous submarine, The Nautilus, referred to as the Nauti-Octopus. Through the story, the sea captain gains clarity of mind as well as body as he is transported towards Amiens, the home of his creator, Jules Verne.

Confirmed as the final installment in the internationally acclaimed graphic novel series, Les Cites Obscures (The Obscure Cities), The Return of Captain Nemo is being produced in conjunction with a sculpture installation being built in Amiens, France, to commemorate the bicentennial of Jules Vernes' birth. Illustrated throughout with full-page and panel illustrations, this volume also includes full-page reproductions of Schuiten's illustrations from the 1994 French edition of Jules Vernes' lost novel, Paris in the Twentieth Century, and essays on Verne and Schuiten by Benoît Peeters.
