Review: A Comic Adaptation of The Little Black Fish

This is a comic adaptation of a children’s story by Iranian teacher and activist, Samad Behrangi. The story is about a fish who unforgivably questions authority and is determined to learn through her own experiences. In the book, the Little Black Fish embarks on a rite of passage journey to find whether or not her friends’ stories about the sea are true. During her travels, she is confronted by various animals who try to persuade her from continuing and some who threaten her very life. The story provides an important example of one’s determination in seeking the truth, self-sacrifice, and questioning authority.


This is an interesting story, but one I enjoyed a lot. Taking an existing story, albeit one that I have never heard and adapting it is an interesting concept. Not knowing the original story puts me in a unique position. I would be interested to hear from someone who maybe grew up on this story like the writer/artist has.
With the little knowledge I have from the blurb, I feel it is an excellent translation of what seems to be an excellent story.
The pacing of the story, and style in which it is created works very well.
But the art is where it really comes out.
The bursts of colour are brilliant – for a story about a little black fish there are many colours going around here!
There are some excellent panel layouts here, where you work your way around the page!
The style of the art is well suited and matches the style and history of the story really well.
This is something I think all ages should read, with an exciting story and I would recommend it it to anyone wanting a read of something different, but works across all cultures!
