About

A modern take on a timeless classic

Everyone knows the adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Now you can meet this unforgettable rebel again in Olivia Vieweg’s comic adaption – but this will be a special kind of reunion, because in her version Huck’s story takes place in the here and now, in present day Germany, in the town of Halle an der Saale.

Here Finn spends his days with his wild buddies, but in the evenings he has to go home to his foster mother, a widow who smothers him with care and attention and is determined to »civilise« him. But Finn has other plans. He knows that he won’t be staying there for much longer, the pull of freedom is too strong...

Olivia Vieweg, one of Germany’s most promising young comic artists, has given us an independent, modern adaptation of one of the true classics of world literature: fresh, wild, surprising.
