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.

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.
Those who criticize the Cursed Pirate Girl for being silly and/or incomplete clearly are not used to comic books and need to lighten up or get rid of it and find something else to read. I've never seen a book that was more fun or worth keeping than this one. And I don't think Jeremy Bastian is all that old, so if we're patient there will most likely be further installments, possibly even a conclusion. I really don't see how such a fired-up creator could resist producing more of such a popular series. At $14.93 + S&H, this book is a steal. One can only hope that the second reprint volume, when/if it finally appears, will match this one.
Story aside, the way the book is bound is absolutely a work of art in itself. The way they make the pages look old and torn and the cover warn out and hand drawn. It truly looks like a book from the 1700s during the times of pirates on the high seas. The way the art is laid out and the maps drawn at to the illusion that this book was created in the 1700s.
I read alot a comics and this is a welcomed change from the norman. Even if you dont read the story you will truly enjoy the book!
Buy this and you will pick it up again and again to look through the unbelievably detailed scenes of pirates, monsters, and sailing ships.
