So very meh. Perhaps it was a lackluster translation, but I found the dialogue unimpressive. The story and characters weren't compelling either. I won't bother with Vol. 2.

A French painter finds himself swept up into a journey of piracy and discovery while his fiancé back home endures trials of her own while waiting for him to return. This is the first volume of a series, and did a good job of drawing me in and setting up interesting characters who have histories and emotions - in other words, they aren't just flat caricatures. The French cartooning style, with messy lines but expressive, often humorous posing, was well done and detailed.

The artwork and the action were well-integrated in this, but that's about the only good thing I can think of to say about it. The plot seemed to lurch this way and that -- it was often totally unclear to me why a character was doing a particular thing. And the end? It seemed to just plain stop, with no reason for doing so, and no attempt to tie up the many loose ends.

Recommends it for: People who like realistic pirate stories and who aren't bothered by disturbing images.
The realism almost made up for the stylized art, (Honestly who can identify with a square-headed hero) but then I got to a pirate rape/orgy scene and decided to call it quits. Who shelved this in the young adult graphic novel section?!
