it was ok

The paper engineering in this book is amazing, but I was disappointed by the graphics. The dot-eyes and the line quality (as if with a felt-tip marker) look amateurish, like something a seventh-grader would draw in his notebook. The drawings are simple, and not in a good way; Persepolis had a simple style whose clarity packs a punch.
I have never read the original Moby-Dick; what I know of the story comes mostly from attending a performance of Orson Welles' Moby-Dick Rehearsed.
