The adventures of John Storm and the Elizabeth Swann. John Storm is an ocean adventurer and conservationist. The Elizabeth Swann is a fast solar powered boat. During a race around the world, news of the sinking of a pirate whaling ship reaches John Storm and his mate Dan Hook. They decide to abandon the race and try and save the whale.





'Kulo Luna' started life as a full blown novel. The below are links to the written chapters, some of which have not been published in full or at all, so as not to spoil the story for readers of the planned graphic novels, or subsequent viewing of any animation or film, etc.


There is a completed screenplay based on these book chapters.


The graphic novel omits many of these chapters entirely, and condenses others, aiming for a lively visual read. The header descriptions are simply to help artists and developers get a quick idea of what the scene conveys.


For a full description (briefing) of the chapters you may want to illustrate, please read the associated book chapter(s) marked in bold. For convenience, you can switch between book and graphic novel descriptions using the title at the head of each page. Chapters not used in the Graphic Novel are signified by gray colour. These links are to external pages that are for the most part, not published.


Kulo Luna is in part inspired by the writings of Herman Melville's 'Moby Dick' (1851) and the accounts of Jeremiah Reynolds of the real life 'Mocha Dick,' a giant sperm whale that sunk 20 ships before being killed in 1838. See also the sinking of the Essex in 1820.


For development purposes, this is a Road Map guide for artists and writers.

This story is a modern Moby Dick, the twist being that there is a happy ending for everyone involved with the $Billion Dollar Whale, even the whalers. Herman Melville would have approved.
