Alan Moore's graphic novel, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, features a giant, double-hulled Nautilus. This original concept, with one hull in the form of a giant squid attached to a second whale-shaped hull, has little to do with Verne, but the sequel, The Black Dossier, includes a small image of the first Nautilus with illustrator Kevin O'Neill's cut-away drawing of the second. O'Neill's spindle-hulled design has a massive ram backed up by large raker fins. It appears he has moved the lantern just forward of the wheelhouse and placed a large porthole in the lower aft hull, but most everything else matches the description in the novel.
