Gus Openshaws Whale Killing Journal

Publisher: MP Publishing Release date: 2010-05-22

Description

Moby Dick for the blog generation. Cat food cannery worker Gus Openshaw has one goal in life: to kill a whale. Not just any whale, but a big, blubbery whale that ate his wife, child, and arm during a vicious and unprovoked attack. With a rickety boat and a heavily restrictive whale-hunting license, Gus sets out to exact his revenge. Along the way, Gus keeps an online journal - a blog - to keep the world informed about his misfit crew, his clashes with pirates, his near-fatal incarceration, and his infatuation with a certain island princess. Complete with gorgeous scrimshaw illustrations, 'Gus Openshaw's Whale-Killing Journal' is the hilarious documentation of one man's obsessive pursuit of a giant whale that would make Captain Ahab proud.
