Men at Sea is an opus of eight spectacularly drawn dark, poetic stories adapted by Riff Reb's.

This collection offers:

A Smile of Fortune by Joseph Conrad
The Sea Horses and The Shamraken Homeward Bound from William Hope Hodgson
The Galley Slaves and The Far South from Pierre Mac Orlan
A Descent into the Maelstrom from Edgar Allan Poe
The Three Customs Officers from Marcel Schwob
The Shipwreck from Robert Louis Stevenson

These eight tales, themselves interspersed by seven double-page spreads dedicated to extracts from illustrated classics, deliver a rich, poetic, and masterfully crafted work of life and death on the sea.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A storybook style that entrancingly depicts deep emotions with its use of stark, macabre colors, harsh shading, and darkly cartoonish faces." - Publishers Weekly

"Men at Sea is one of the most striking collections of short works in comics seen in some time.... This is a virtual treasure trove for those who love art, literature, and history." - Comics Grinder

"Riff Reb's is a truly remarkable storyteller; his artwork is timeless and evocative and his skills at writing easily match it. [...] Strange and beautiful in equal measure, this is a fine example of what can be done with the medium of the graphic novel." - Hellbound.ca
