Overview

Sinbad, the legendary hero of the high seas, has faced many challenges in his lifetime, but none will test him more than the when he is made responsible for a wilful ward, Habib. Together they set off on a voyage, only to find themselves in the middle of a harsh storm on a wild sea. Luck guides them to an island full of riches, but they are still not safe. With the jewels on this island come giant snakes, gigantic eggs, and monstrous birds! And if this were not enough, when they escape to yet another island they find cannibals waiting for them. Fate intervenes yet again, only to lead them to into more danger with hideous rodents and the possibility of being buried alive!

While they move from adventure to adventure, Sinbad has to groom his young charge to become a responsible man, someone both his father and guardian can be proud of. But will Sinbad's wit and courage be enough? Will they live long enough to for the boy to grow into a worthy young man?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A tame, mildly interesting story decked in wonderfully exuberant art, this Indian comic transforms roguish Sinbad into the patient tutor of a wayward prince. When King Haakim sends his teenage son Habib on a voyage to teach him how to behave like an adult, the spoiled brat makes enemies of Sinbad’s crew and is responsible for the ship being blown off course and forced to anchor near islands full of dangerous giant animals, beautiful cannibal women, and an obstinately death-obsessed kingdom. Despite this, Sinbad rescues the prince from his blunders, while relating the tale of his own youthful adventures that helped him grow up. The story fulfills its didactic purpose adequately, but the book’s main attraction is New Delhi artist Kumar’s work, which makes angry giant snakes and slinky female assassins look both vibrantly energetic and believably solid. All ages. (Feb.)¦
From the Publisher
"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature."

Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

VOYA - Kristin Fletcher-Spear
Sinbad, the swashbuckling sailor of the seven seas, sets out on a new adventure in this colored graphic novel. As a favor to his friend King Haakim, Sinbad is bringing Prince Habib onto his ship for a voyage—a voyage that includes a wild storm, an island full of gigantic creatures, cannibals, and a trickery of a marriage. Through it all, Sinbad tells Habib the tale of his own growing up and saving Haakim's life. Campfire Graphic Novels is an Indian company bringing graphic stories that deal with values, adventure, and inspiration to readers. They have original tales as well as adapted classics in their collection. In this graphic novel, the color illustrations are very well done. The flashback of Sinbad's tale is all done in muted tones, while the present action is full of vibrant tones. While lessons are learned in the graphic novel (Habib begins as a spoiled child but he becomes a more responsible man by the end), the action of the tale masks the lesson of the graphic novel. While better suited for a tween audience, teens who are interested in the Sinbad story will find this quite enjoyable. Reviewer: Kristin Fletcher-Spear
