Manga Classics: Huckleberry Finn GN (2017 Udon) comic books
1st printing. Based on the story by Mark Twain. Art and cover by Chan. Chafed by the "sivilized" restrictions of his foster home, and weary of his drunkard father's brutality, 14 year-old Huck Finn fakes his own death and sets off on a raft down the Mississippi River. He is soon joined by Jim, an escaped slave. Together, they experience a series of rollicking adventures that have amused readers, young and old, for over a century. The fugitives become close friends as they weather storms together aboard the raft and spend idyllic days swimming, frying catfish suppers, and enjoying their independence. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 324 pages, B&W. NOTE: These are Japanese manga-style GNs and are meant to be read right-to-left. Cover price $17.99.
