Description

A young cop in 1830’s London is hot on the trail of Captain Swing and his band of Electrical Pirates, futuristic villains who sail the very sky!

From the sparking-mad mind of Warren Ellis, the creator of TRANSMETROPOLITAN and PLANETARY, comes an electrical romance of a pirate utopia thwarted!  In the London of 1830, newly-minted copper Charlie Gravel keeps seeing things he's not supposed to: a crooked Bow Street Runner with a flintlock revolver, high-flying vessels that are not supposed to fly, and the violent Scientific Phantasmagoria popularly known as Spring-Heeled Jack.  With the coming of Captain Swing and his Electrical Pirates, history shall never be the same!  This crackling new graphic novel is illustrated by Raulo Caceres in a stunning woodcut style, capturing the classic literary feel from days of yore.
