by Crossgen Meet Lady Sin: a Spanish Donessa who searches the seven seas on a quest for vengeance. It's 1687, and pirate captain Blackjack Tom sets siege on a Spanish galleon. All the brave Spaniards are killed - save for one: the beautiful, aristocratic Donessa, who vows to take revenge. She seizes control of one of Blackjack Tom's ships; is rechristened "Lady Sin," the most bloodthirsty - and comeliest - lady pirate on the high seas; and sets sail to find her kidnapped mother and brother.
This graphic novel, exquisitely drawn and colored by Steve Epting and Frank D'Aramta, brings the violent and swashbuckling era to vivid life. Chuck Dixon's dark and action-paced story has a moral depth that may take novice graphic-novel readers by surprise. As Comic Book News said: "Forget those peg-leg walk-the-plank melodramas--Dixon and Epting are going for reality here with a pirate saga that captures the gritty truth of nautical adventures."
