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 author-drawn 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.
