Comic Books


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. Secrets are revealed, in the weird little pirate utopia of Cindery Island, as Captain Swing explains exactly what’s been happening in the world over the last two thousand years or so. But the forces of Law are coming for them, and Law has no time for Pirates — or Science.

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.

  1. Looks like this if finally coming out, what has it been, 3, 4 months?  At least its only a four part mini.

  2. 7 and a half months? 🙁

    A nice surprise nonetheless.

  3. About time…

  4. Jesus, I completely forgot about this book. It’s been that long between issues?

    If my LCS has an extra copy I’ll get it this week. Caceres art was amazing the first two issues so I can kinda understand the delay…..but it’s still annoying.

  5. I already sold the first two issues and am waiting for the trade. It’s good stuff, but I can’t wait 7 months between issues and remember what is happening. That is ridiculous.

  6. Good comic, great art. I’ll have to reread the first two issues…

  7. Fucking gorgeous looking book. Raulo Caceres really did an amazing job with this. Justifies the 8 month lateless for me.


  8. @TheNextChampion  its the same artist on the new crossed series pyscopath, thank you for the review
