    1. Cursed Pirate Girl is stunning. There is no artist today in comic books who can draw like Jeremy Bastian. When the first issue of this collection came out years ago, it immediately caught my eye. The detailed black & white line drawings are irresistible. The main character and the story line are at once unique and familiar. Cursed Pirate Girl has an aura about it, that of always having been trapped inside our heads, and Bastian has managed to conjure it like Michelangelo freed his sculptures [...]

    2. The art in this book is stunning and I love the Pirate Girl's fearlessness and swagger. I wanted to really be drawn into the story, but reading it, I felt pulled in a few directions. The detail and richness of the art can distract from the narrative movement and there's no rhythm of down-time and character building. It's just event after event after event, without pacing; no building of momentum in a kind of wave-like, tidal, motion.This book is in some ways light and funny, with physical comedy [...]

    3. [3.5 Stars] This was pretty cool! I think the artwork is really what stands out because it manages to be beautiful, detailed, and grotesque all at the same time. The story is a bit off the wall and pretth whimsical, but I actually really liked that. I do really wish that the artwork had a bit more contrast. Everything was so detailed that it was sometimes difficult to figure out what your eyes were supposed to rest on. All that said and done, I do think this could have used just a little more of [...]

    4. So I just read this in one sitting and I came away with a feelings about Pirates-Victorians-Alice-in-Wonderland-Underwater-Adventures-&-Beautiful-Art; essentially this book has a lot going onI picked this up after reading the Mouse Guard where Jeremy Bastian did some guest artist work becuase I immediately loved his style of drawing and line-work and it reminded me a lot of the style I love to draw in. Therefore, I could really appreciate the LEVEL of detail within this story. This book, eve [...]

    5. Jeremy Bastian may not be a name you are familiar with in terms of comic lore, but mark my words: he soon will be. The Hieronymous Bosch-like ink-work alone in this sequential masterpiece makes this artist green with envy, nevermind the Alice-in-Wonderland-meets-Treasure-Island story. Curse you, Jeremy Bastian!

    6. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyIt’s rare to find a book that feels darkly grown up and enchantingly child-like at the same time. CURSED PIRATE GIRL is spooky, touching and intricate, luring you into a topsy-turvy world with detailed images that pull you in.The art ranges from the charming to the disgusting, with a distinct Alice in Wonderland sense of the grotesque, especially in the humanoid characters. They have large heads and out of proportion features, much like the humanoids [...]

    7. So much fun and the art is an explosion of details on the pages. You could pour over the illustrations for an afternoon. Read it with my 9 yr old daughter. Great fun. Did I say it was fun? It is.

    8. The Cursed Pirate Girl is a mind-twisting trip through the adventures of a young girl looking for her pirate father on the Omertà Seas. It has been compared to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which I can see, but I enjoyed this WAY more.Starting out, you meet Apollonia, the Govenor's daughter, who witnesses a fight between three rough looking boys and young girl. After the boys get thrashed, the young girls tells Apollonia to meet her the next day & she would tell the tale of the Cursed P [...]

    9. Beautiful, beautiful book. Bastian's artwork is sumptuous, reminding me at times of John R. Neill, Windsor McCay, Tony Millionaire, Dame D'arcy, Bob Burden, S. Clay Wilson and Eric Shanower. There are incredible amounts of detail on every page. The story is like a child's fantasy of pirates. It almost reminds me of the One Piece manga in some respects. This is impressive stuff, and I eagerly await volume 2. Special kudos to the designer of this book, as it's a work of art in itself (take that, e [...]

    10. My coworker lent this to me when she found out I love pirates. The illustrations are intensely detailed—sometime distractingly so—and the story had a sort of Alice in Wonderland on the High Seas vibe. It's fun enough, but I probably won't pick up the next collected volume. It doesn't read enough like a well-illustrated story for me. There are odd jumps in the narrative, stilted dialogue, and a general disconnect between the quality/efficacy of the words and the pictures.

    11. The sheer detail on every single page of this book is stunning. I found myself holding the book weirdly close to my face just to see all the hidden elements which are just so elaborate and amazing. Plus the story is kick-ass and features two little girls.

    12. The artwork and writing in this book are absolutely breathtaking. (And it's about a fierce pirate girl, so it was kind of a given that I would love it.)

    13. Tout simplement magnifique ! Mon souhait serait de vivre cette aventure, à travers ce dessin minutieux et si beau

    14. I loved this so much I borrowed it, read it twice, passed it to my sister and bought my own copy. In two days.

    15. I don't think I've ever read a comic like this before. Fantastic. Highly recommended. Immerse yourself in the gorgeous art. Buy it!

    16. The first thing that hit me about Cursed Pirate Girl was the art. I'm no artist, nor am I familiar with artist styles but this just hit me as old-fashioned and beautiful. At first glance I thought it was a little messy/crowded but as I took a closer look the detail and artistry was just really amazing. The story is also completely engrossing. We follow the Cursed Pirate Girl, stranded on an island having no memory of her father except that he visits her in her dreams. She makes friends and ene [...]

    17. The black and white art is a bit like Charles Addams if he'd been on an Aubrey Beardsley kick, strange art nouveau with very weird characters. The book itself has a rough deckle edge and include a 4x wanted poster. The story is thin though, so enjoy it for the art.

    18. The art is amazing, and though very detailed I don't find it distracting. The story is very simple, and this is only the first part, so it's hard to say where it's heading. She's very fearless, but also very young, so we'll probably see more character development later. I want to know more about Appolonia and what the hell is going on with the Governor.

    19. Oh my, the art in this graphic novel is fantastic! If you like very detailed line drawings that you can devour for hours, this might be the book for you. Oh, and there are talking parrots, fighting swordfish brothers, pirates, gun powder, and fiery girls on a quest -- do yourselves a favor, read this.

    20. I love stories about pirates - you hardly get any these days so this was an absolute treat. Beautifully drawn - the artwork is simply breathtaking - a modern day fable about a cursed pirate girl who is searching for her father in a land of strange creatures and dangers.I can't wait for vol.2.

    21. The artwork is intricate and exquisite! The story is frolicking fanciful and fun!While reading it , I felt that I may have to soon re-read itto spend more time pouring over the detailed drawings!Is this a debut? If so, it is Stellar!If not, it is Stellar!More, please!

    22. Sublime univers fantastique crée par Jeremy Bastian, à la croisée d'Alice et des contes de notre enfance. Le trait est magnifique et chaque case force l'arrêt pour observer les détails magnifiques. L'ouvrage est un vrai trésor et mérite une relecture pour observer tous ces détails crayonnés.

    23. The Cursed Pirate Girl is full of rambunctious, but refined energy. Jeremy A. Bastion is an amazing artist, and highly recommended. I wrote a review Dad! :)

    24. Great story (I hope there's a second volume) and absolutely stunningly detailed artwork. I'd recommend this for the artwork alone.

    25. "Cursed Pirate Girl" is the bizarre daughter of "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Alice in Wonderland". Chronicling the adventures of a daring young protagonist known only as the Cursed Pirate Girl, the story follows her on her adventure to find her missing father, a pirate captain of magical blood himself. I'm a casual fan of the PoC series, so I don't know a lot of pirate lore. Have the black waves of the Omerta Seas always been a thing of pirate mythology or is this original content? The artwor [...]

    26. An entertaining story -- a mix of Alice and Wonderland wonder and pirate-story logic -- enhanced by wildly elaborate illustrations. The black-and-white drawings are amazingly detailed, with many pages featuring unusually complicated layouts. Like a sailor's tattoos, it's hard to tell sometimes which parts of the page are part of a story, and which are just there for atmosphere, but if you don't think about the distinction too much, it all blends into the overall, bizarre story of revenge, explor [...]

    27. I'm several decades older than the target audience for this book. I literally stumbled onto it because it was sticking out from the bottom shelf into the aisle of my public library. That led me to find one of the most beautifully produced physical books I've ever seen. It has thick paper with deckled edges and is illustrated in extremely beautiful detail. The plot is minimal, but the action and illustrations kept me turning pages. No matter your age or if you have ever picked up a graphic novel [...]

    28. Ok, the story was great. The art work was beautiful. But the pages were just too busy for me. I like detail, but this was a bit of an overload for me. Just didn't allow for a nice reading experience for me when I was too worried about missing any detail that might be important. And there were a lot a details to try and take in.

    29. DNF a little less than halfway through. Man, the art is so TINY AND BUSY it hurts my eyes. The font is overly fancy too, so reading it is difficult. The art is also very ugly on purpose, like the old alice in wonderland illustrations. The story of a brave pirate girl befriending a pretty rich girl is interesting but not enough to struggle through that art.
