Early Book Review: Cursed Pirate Girl by Jeremy Bastian


Cursed Pirate Girl by Jeremy Bastian is a graphic novel for children, around age 8 and older. This book collects the issues of volume one and is scheduled for release on December 25, 2012. This tale is a high sea adventure with a fearless young pirate girl taking a mystical trip in search of her father, who is side to be a Pirate Captain in the Omerta Seas. The story is a thrilling and whimsical trip through a nautical rabbit hole. The artwork is all black and white, and stylized, adding a special component to the tale.

Cursed Pirate Girl is a fun, and sometimes crazed tale. The people and creatures in the story are as stylized as the artwork.While the story start in Port Elisabeth, Jamaica in the year 1728, it quickly shifts to a mythical realm of pirates and imaginative creatures, both above and below the water line. The story is whimsical and fun, leaving you eager to read more. My only issue with the electronic version I read was the stylized lettering. It was sometimes hard to read on a screen, and enlarging the page past a certain point would only lead to distortion.I think this is an issue that would only effect electronic versions of the book.

Cursed Pirate Girl is a fun and easy graphic novel to lose yourself in. The creatures are imaginative and fun, rather like a trip through Alice's Wonderland, only with pirates.
