Toilers of the Sea (Les Travailleurs de la Mer) is a novel by Victor Hugo, the great French writer better known for his Les Miserables. Published in 1866, it tells the story of a social outcast from the island of Guernsey (where Hugo lived in exile) who sets out to salvage the steam engine from a wrecked ship in order to win the hand of the owner's daughter. This comic book version is a good example of how a literary masterpiece can be popularised through a medium that continues to be loved by millions. (2.3 MiB, PDF, 52 pages including cover)
