Captain Swing and the Electrical Pirates of Cindery Island (Volume 1)

Captain Swing (Volume 1)

Warren Ellis

I really enjoyed this volume (after I finished, I found out it was a series).  It takes place in England and is a very steampunky story of pirates, police, mystery and murder.  I loved the art A TON.  I thought it fit the story perfectly.  Though most of the colors were pretty dark and drab, they made the illustrations of the electricity even cooler.  I highly recommend this one to those of you who are fans of books featuring obscure historical events (with some minor liberties taken on account of historical accuracy) with an English steampunk element added in.  Go check it out from your library now–I promise you’ll love it!
