A Graphic Novel About the Franklin Expedition

Amidst some of the fiction one sees around the lost Franklin Expedition (not least the recent TV Series, The Terror). One recent example that is worth reading, is the graphic novel currently being serialised in it's English version on the Tapas website. Icebound: Franklin's Lost Expedition, by Kristina Gehrmann, is by turns deftly written, thought provoking, and gives plausible accounts of what might have easily happened where there is speculation. Throughouly researched as well, it is worth a read for anyone interested in Arctic/Antarctic exploration and it's history
