Jeremy Bastian is an Ann Arbor, Michigan-based comic book artist. His novel Cursed Pirate Girl has a devoted following not just in the United States but also across the world. Despite the fact that he utilizes a brush and ink, the distinctive art style he employs in his work is evocative of 15th century engravings. Variant covers for BOOM! Studios’ Judas series and Labyrinth have been created by Jeremy.
“THE DEVIL’S CAVE is my finest work yet, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you.” Cursed Pirate Girl travels the marvels of the Omerta Seas and meets even more unusual individuals in her quest to reconnect with her father in this long-awaited chapter,” stated Bastian. “If you thought the last portion of her narrative was incredible, wait till you see this!”
The popular cult series Cursed Pirate Girl began in 2012 with the narrative of Apollonia, the daughter of the governor of Port Elizabeth, who meets the intriguing, no-nonsense Cursed Pirate Girl, a travelling adventurer on a journey to locate her father, a fearsome pirate captain of the Omerta Seas. Cursed Pirate Girl’s wild and thrilling adventures have continued since then in the Cursed Pirate Girl graphic novel and special issue Cursed Pirate Girl 2015 Annual, which have received widespread acclaim for their intricately detailed illustrations evoking Arthur Rackham and Gustave Dore’s fairy tale depictions.
“It’s an absolute joy to have CURSED PIRATE GIRL return, and with one of the most compelling and innovative adventures for the character ever,” said Bryce Carlson, BOOM! Studios’ Editor. “It’s been well worth the wait to see Jeremy’s work at its very finest in THE DEVIL’S CAVE, which has amazing drawings and engaging storyline.”
