Good thing, considering I haven’t read any. This is a read that could have easily went sideways. Luckily, Jack Campbell does a good job of giving you all the information you need to know about the Alliance vs Syndicate war, while still tempting you to come check out the novels themselves to find out more about Black Jack and his adventures. ‘The Lost Fleet: Corsair‘ is well-served by Andre Siregar’s illustrative talents. Sebastian Cheng’s coloring is impeccable. The layout is easy to follow, which is a major plus in my book. I also appreciated the timeline at the end. It laid out exactly how Geary’s capture and escape happened against the timeline of the The Lost Fleet series. This volume has a lot going for it, and for some readers it will probably be a great choice. However, personally I found that it did not work great for me. Even though Campbell does a great job of letting us know the backstory of the war, I don’t think he spent enough time developing our two main characters. I wanted to be able to root for either one or both of them. I found it almost impossible to do so. This hampered my enjoyment of the book. However, the flow of the story was nice enough that I did still like it. Just not nearly as much as I had hoped. (To be fair, at the end of the novel there are some ‘ident cards’ that give us some more information, but at that point it was too late.) Overall, while ‘The Lost Fleet: Corsair‘ didn’t exactly thrill me, I wouldn’t be adverse to reading more in the series. I have a feeling I would be more fond of it as it develops. I am also interested in reading some of the original novel series. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review consideration.

    I was looking for a good Space Opera graphic novel. I’m still looking. If the writing here is indicative of the novel series this is derived from, then I’m baffled by their appeal. This is hands down some of the worst dialogue I’ve ever encountered, and the characters are unbelievable stock stereotypes. On top of that the heroes can do no wrong, effortlessly winning battle after battle. Taking over a battle cruiser? No problem. Learning unfamiliar systems in two hours? Piece of cake.

Taking out numerous warships with battle-hardened crews with your understaffed cruiser that is comprised of two factions who are at each others’ throats? Easy peasy. Learning lessons about trust and honor along the way? Walk in the park. Do any of the good guys die? Nope. Not a one. Ridiculous. For prisoners who have been detained for years, they’re all in remarkably good shape. Nice and fit with freshly pressed uniforms, stylish haircuts, perfect physiques... this is the worst kind of juvenile power fantasy, because it has no teeth and no stakes. It doesn’t even have anything interesting to say. Pointless waste of time.

    It's an extension to the LF canon which is nice, but I think it suffers in the translation to the graphic format. the ideals and settings are there, but the underlying depth is missing - complex ideas and thoughts that are explored in the books necessarily replaced with rote recitations of dogma or splashy pew-pew battle illustrations.

    Set after Lost Fleet series and during Lost Stars series, this comic adaptation is, by all accounts, part of canon for the Lost Fleet franchise. Written by Jack Campbell. The trouble is I have spent time visualising the characters and it jars with the illustrations. However, that is a minor quibble. Here we once again meet Michael Geary, last seen in Book #1 of Lost Fleet. Despite the war being over, he and other prisoners have not been repatriated as per the peace treaty negotiated by his great Set after Lost Fleet series and during Lost Stars series, this comic adaptation is, by all accounts, part of canon for the Lost Fleet franchise.

Here we once again meet Michael Geary, last seen in Book #1 of Lost Fleet. Despite the war being over, he and other prisoners have not been repatriated as per the peace treaty negotiated by his great uncle Black Jack Geary. Which just goes to show you cannot trust a regime based upon the morals, or lack of them, of Corporate America combined with that of Communist China. With the Syndic regime falling apart, Geary and other Alliance prisoners are given an opportunity to escape capture. But can they trust their Syndic co-conspirators?

    If you've read Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet novels then you'll enjoy this comic series. It's set in the same universe, after the Lost Frontier books, and features the same fast paced fleet-to-fleet space battles, featuring tactics that apply as much real science as possible. Unfortunately if you haven't read at least one or two of the novels then you're going to be fairly confused for quite a bit of this collection.

    Yay! We finally learn what happened to Michael Geary. We’ve had hints throughout the original Lost Fleet series and its successors, with occasional references to the “presumed dead” grand-nephew giving us hope he’s not dead. In typical Campbell style, Michael’s escape is far from easy and only gets more complicated as events progress. This promises to be an interesting series.

    Actually read 1-5. Good science fiction comic book series based in the Lost Fleet universe.
