Pirates of Mars has all the elements of the traditional pirate tale set in a futuristic setting complete with a heartless sanguine General, smelly henchmen, a wrathful wench or two and a sociopathic homicidal robot. Written by the creative and witty JJ Kahrs and beautifully illustrated by the lovely and talented Veronica Fish, I’ve been stuck to this graphic novel like a barnacle sticks stubbornly to the bottom of a ship.

Having bought the Pirates of Mars preview, complete with concept art and writing samples, I was salivating to check out the full first volume: LOVE & REVENGE. The first volume tells the tale of Captain Victoria Lovelace, of her ship The Revenge, her motley crew and her complicated past. This nail-biting story is set in the future and showcases an abundance of all things Modern-Pirate – including large dosages of razor-sharp wit and enough Victorian-styled frill, metal hulls and flying bullets to keep one on their toes.

Having followed Veronica’s works for many-a-year, I am always at awe (and in a state of perpetual jealousy) of her many skills as an artist and her work in this is no exception. She works together with Kahrs’ acid-wit and creativity as a writer to bring an aesthetically pleasing and intelligence-tingling work to the fore.

Pirates of Mars: Love & Revenge is here! With solid visual story-telling, punchy dialogue and super fun characters, this face-paced adventure is the snappy new graphic novel from writer JJ Kahrs and artist Veronica Fish.

Captain Victoria Lovelace heads up a crew of misfits and swashbucklers in this pulp adventure tale. Daring escapes, making light work of swarms of attacking ninjas, and taking on a fleet of Imperial airships are just part of the job for Lovelace.

But when Victoria’s world comes crashing down around her, even the best of ties are strained – and suddenly daring escapes aren’t as breezy as they used to be…

For a little taste beyond my photographic efforts, check out the Pirates of Mars website and blog, where pages are released bi-weekly, every Monday and Thursday. But, if you’re horribly impatient like me, purchase the whole damned thing in all of its papery-glory using the links below.

All in all, it is awesome!

    1. I’ve had a little look-see and it says that NOOK can play MOBI files, but it says nothing about the other way around – there also seems to be no converters! May just have to go hardcover instead!

  1. Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must
    say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.

    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest price?

    Thanks, I appreciate it!

  2. Having read this I believed it was very enlightening. I appreciate you finding the
    time and energy to put this short article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, itt wass still worthwhile!

  3. This herbal solution will help you achieve picture perfect
    hair once more. Consult with a veterinarian for the proper dosage based on the
    individual pig’s weight. Refrain or limit the amount of heat
    applied to your hair through the use of blow dryers, curling
    irons, straighteners, etc.
