The art is pretty basic & it could've been longer, but otherwise I liked this a lot.

An engaging account of Shackleton's failed expedition that became an epic story of survival. I just wish the book had been bigger and longer, because the story would have been improved by more details and the characters would have been easier to tell apart had the illustrations been larger. But the fact that I wanted more means what was there was successful at drawing me in and holding my attention.

A somewhat fictionalized graphic account of the harrowing ordeal of the Shackleton expedition to Antarctica. Some of the drama of the story is lost in Bertozzi's compressed narrative but it still serves as a good introduction to this remarkable true adventure story.
