Reviews

A good old-fashioned 18th-century pirate yarn filled with depravity, random violence, cruelty, and laughs. The story's cheerfully nihilistic approach may not be for all tastes, but it serves up a visceral satire for those that can stomach it.
Those wanting a visual tour de force and an exciting exercise in graphic storytelling need look no further.
An uncommonly vicious swashbuckling romp, absolutely entertaining and fantastically illustrated.
Schrauwen is one of the most provocative creators in the world of comics today.
