Set to Sea
Fantagraphics proudly brings Drew Weing's hit nautical classic back into print. The central character of Set to Sea is a poet who writes paeans to the seafaring life. When he gets shanghaied aboard a clipper bound for Hong Kong, he finds the sailor's life a bit rougher than his fantasies, but he soon learns to love life on the sea. Set to Sea is part adventure, part maritime ballad. Every page is a single panel, every panel is a stunning illustration, every illustration a part of a larger whole that tells a story in the deft language of cartooning.
