Avatar Plug Of The Week: Warren Ellis’ Captain Swing TPB

Posted by November 15, 2011 Comment

Consider this a call to action for trade waiters. Warren Ellis and Raulo Caceres’ Captain Swing And The Electrical Pirates Of Cindery Island, out in softcover and hardcover from Avatar Press tomorrow. Here’s the solicits…

From the sparking-mad mind of Warren Ellis, the creator of TRANSMETROPOLITAN and PLANETARY, comes an electrical romance of a pirate utopia thwarted!  In the London of 1830, newly-minted copper Charlie Gravel keeps seeing things he’s not supposed to: a crooked Bow Street Runner with a flintlock revolver, high-flying vessels that are not supposed to fly, and the violent Scientific Phantasmagoria popularly known as Spring-Heeled Jack.  With the coming of Captain Swing and his Electrical Pirates, history shall never be the same!  This crackling new graphic novel is illustrated by Raulo Caceres in a stunning woodcut style, capturing the classic literary feel from days of yore.

Here’s a preview…

And here’s some covers!
