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,” from 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.

Reviews:Publishers Weekly wrote:

“A storybook style that entrancingly depicts deep emotions with its use of stark, macabre colors, harsh shading, and darkly cartoonish faces.”

About the Contributor

Riff Reb’s was born in Algeria and lived his formative years in Le Havre, France. He attended The School of Decorative Arts and later co-founded the Azylum Studio, a place of creativity for now-recognized artists. Their first project, Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea, an animated series, was adapted simultaneously as a comic book. After years of publishing comics in France and developing a bittersweet drawing style, Riff Reb’s has become a leading figure in a new school of comic books, skillfully blending a dynamic, innovative drawing style with an often-irreverent style of speech.
