Moby Dick

Moby Dick is a whale featured in the Italian comic book series Dylan Dog. Moby Dick appeared in one special issue that is based on the Moby Dick novel.


Moby Dick was a huge white sperm whale. Her nemesis was captain Ahab. In the comic it is said that Moby Dick has time travelling powers, when she finally caught Ahab in her jaws instead of killing him she mysteriously transported him in time to present day. Ahab then hired Dylan Dog to help him find her and kill her. Ultimately Ahab mounted a water scooter and aimed for the whale, when just before chrashing into her he activated a bomb and blew himself up along with the Whale. It is then explained that Ahab and Moby Dick did not really die but instead created a time laps and returned to their own time.
