CAPTAIN NEMO -- MADMAN OR SAVIOR?
A mysterious sea monster has been attacking ships. Professor Pierre Aronnax, the renowned French marine biologist, has been summoned. It's a giant narwhal, we think, Professor, says the United States Government -- a deadly kind of whale.
Aronnax summons master harpoonist Ned Land -- and his assistant, Conseil -- to join the expedition to stop this threat. Aboard the ship Abraham Lincoln they track the beast. The Professor and his team are thrown overboard -- and captured by the most famously tormented captain of all time and his astonishing underwater vessel: Captain Nemo and the Nautilus These indelible names echo down the corridors of science fiction and will forever.
