Bertozzi’s The Voyage of the James Caird

01james caird Bertozzis The Voyage of the James Caird
Over at Activate Nick Bertozzi is recounting a tale of Ernest Shackleton, the English explorer who was trapped in the Antarctic for over a year. Bertozzi has a previous story about Shackleton, Patience Camp, up as well.

We think Bertozzi is one of our finest cartoonists, but what’s interesting here is that he actually has redrawn the first chapter of this comic, having realized he wasn’t stretching himself. You can see the first version here and the new version here.

Comments

  1. Wow! Both versions are just fantastic! (Then again, I’m biased. I’ve read both of Frank Worsley’s books about that journey.)

  2. Great comic book; in fact, it’s my favourite! During my expedition across the Southern Ocean aboard a replica of the James Caird, I carried a copy of Nick’s cartoon series in my journal – it helped me to visually remember the events which unfolded during those desperate days in Arpil 1916.
