From the sparking-mad mind of Warren Ellis, comes an electrical romance of a pirate utopia thwarted: CAPTAIN SWING & THE ELECTRICAL PIRATES OF CINDERY ISLAND. London copper Charlie Gravel is on a boat ride to hell. He’s about to discover what the people above his station really do to run the country, and to find out that, among the smugglers of the Blackwater and the dark creeks of Essex, there are such a thing as Electrical Pirates. This historical science-fiction piratical romance by Warren Ellis is illustrated in Raulo Caceres’ stunning woodcut style, and presented in full color. It is the time of Captain Swing and his Electrical Pirates, and history will never be the same. CAPTAIN SWING #2 is available with a Regular or Wraparound cover by series artist Raulo Caceres, and a special retailer incentive Penny Dreadful cover designed to look like a classic novel of yore.

  1. This is finally coming out? Sweet!

    Although my shop might not get this….cause it’s been delayed for so long I forgot to put it in my pullbin. 


  3. I can’t remember what happened in #1

  4. @deadspace  A whole lot of cockney is what happened in #1

  5. Oh I loved every minute of this. Lateness be damned! Just a good mix of alternate reality and pirate speak. Plus I can see why there was such a lateness. Good god, Caceres is a brilliant artist. I never felt the need of owning pages until I saw this issue.
