Actually, Captain Nemo is a great manga. It has very pretty art, dynamic panels, a fantasic atmosphere, and the main character isn't as stupid as she seems at first. Especially the underwater scenes are incredibly well done. Then why the three stars? Because this volume ends on one huge cliffhanger - which would have been fine, should there ever be a second volume. But this one has been published in 2006, and there is no news about a second one now, eight years later. Well, I guess that's what h ...more
Second time around, I leave the same rating, but I appreciate the manga itself more. I can see the influences from Jules Verne, Alan Moore, and even some POTC. I love the characters and how distinct they are. The story itself - an action adventure sci-fi under the sea epic - is greatness waiting to be explored. I'm not a huge fan of the art, but I like DeAngelis enough to enjoy it. I hope one day that the next manga will come about!
If you are a sucker for 19th century adventure stories than this book may be up your alley. I picked it up for 1 dollar at a bookstore, and wow am I glad I didnt save that for a chocolate bar. It is fast paced, fun, easy to read, and overall a great story. Captain Nemo is a book for children, teens, and even adults, if you are looking for a popcorn flick type read. 4 thumbs up to Jason DeAngelis!
Captain Nemo Volume 1 is a manga book. Surprisingly it didn't take me long to catch on reading from right to left. This is a pirate story where young Captain Nemo and his crew are defiant against Napoleon IV. This manga book also has romance in it as well. Highly recommend reading this manga book. Great graphics.
