About the Author

Jeremy Bastian has been called by many a “crazy” person. His dedication for filling a page from gutter to gutter with delicate detail, whimsical characters, and strange creatures might not seem too far out of the norm. However, Jeremy draws his pages at the size they are printed and does it all with a very small brush. If anything, one might have to blow up the images that pour from his mind, just to be able to see them. His book Cursed Pirate Girl beckons to the 19th century in subject and style.

Format: Hardcover
It's great to find a young girl as the swashbuckling heroine of a fine graphic novel, so that's a great place to start from right there.

Added to that is the fact that the story really does have a great deal of swash and buckle. The Cursed Pirate Girl starts out as a sort whimsical and deluded character, but then takes charge of her own adventure as she sets out on the Omerta Seas to find her lost father. With good companions and worthy foes she thinks and fights her way through a number of well-thought out adventures.

I think the real question is where you come out on the artwork. The illustrations are exaggerated and fantastical, with outrageous amounts of detail and incidental matter. Think of political cartoons from the late 1800's or the kinds of illustrations you see in old copies of "Punch" and the like. Caricature, lots of bits of dialogue slipped in around the edges, lots of detail and business. If you like that, you'll love this. If you find that style too busy or unattractive, then this book will be heavy going. I fall somewhere in the middle and appreciate what the artist was doing, and so that and the engaging story were enough for me.

For what it's worth, the description above on this Amazon page mentions a new epilogue created just for this collection. That's fine, but the neatest thing is that at the end of the book there are way more than a dozen versions of pirate girl drawn in almost every style imaginable. For me that was worth the cost of the book because each drawing was a fascinating expression of just how differently many distinct artists can represent a single character. Totally cool.

Please note that I received a free electronic copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a frank review.

Previous reviews of Cursed Pirate Girl have adequately described the content of this work: The story and dialogue, the characters, and the world of CPG are completely crazy and the artwork is fantastic, so detailed that, although my reading vision is fine, I keep a magnifying glass handy to appreciate the nearly microscopic details that were probably drawn at twice this size. I had seen all this in the original comic books (which I sold for a huge profit). What're new here are the production values of the book itself, which is made to resemble a children's book from Dad's or Granddad's childhood.

Even before selling the comic books, I knew I wanted to own a copy of the whole thing for re-reading and re-enjoying. Late last year I saw that this new compilation was coming out in January and decided to go for it. There is at least one other reprint available but at more than twice the price of this one. When this book arrived I was astounded and delighted. Maybe it isn't for everyone - like the tale itself. But this book is designed and produced to seem old-fashioned, like turn-of-the twentieth-century or earlier: The cover illustrations and the title are deeply stamped in; the edges of the cover are meant to look a little grimy; and the interior pages of soft, cheap paper are rough along the edges, as if they've been trimmed by tearing with an old ruler. There is a two-page map of "the Omerta Seas and the lands they possess" inside the front cover (get out your magnifying glass). And the extra material at the end, including a fold-out wanted poster of CPG and tribute illustrations by well-known artists, is a lot of fun.

Format: Hardcover
I got a copy of this book to review through NetGalley(dot)com. I was drawn to the artwork on the cover of the book and after reading the synopsis was even more intrigued. The illustrations throughout echo times past and are incredibly and amazingly detailed. The story is fun, quirky, and engaging.

The story features Cursed Pirate Girl. She is trying to hunt down her father who is an Omerta Seas Pirate. Along the way she encounters a number of other pirates and makes many great escapes.

This was a pretty darn fantastic read. It is a graphic novel done in very old school style; the artwork is incredibly detailed and absolutely breathtaking. I just cannot emphasis enough how amazing this illustration is. You can look at these pictures forever and constantly pick out new details that you missed at first glance.

Cursed Pirate Girl is a wonderful character, she fears nothing and laughs in the face of many fierce pirates. The story is filled with lots of humor, tons of adventure, and a plucky fearless heroine.

The narration is a bit broken up and scattered. We sometimes hear from different characters that don't seem to have much impact on the story. Still for me this only added to the fun quirkiness of the story.

This book contains the first three issues of Curse Pirate Girl. At the end of this book there is still much of the story to be resolved. Hopefully the story will be continued in future installments.

There is a lot of action and fighting and sometimes Cursed Pirate Girl finds herself in sticky situations. Even given all of this this is a book that's appropriate for all ages.

Overall I am so happy I found this graphic novel.
