A great comic book series for age of sail aficionados

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I want to draw your attention to the comic series "Les Passagers du vent" (The Passengers of The Wind in English and Vindens Passager in Danish). The series was created by french artist François Bourgeon in the eighties and is set in the 17th-century. The protagonist of the series is a young french noble woman, who by various reason is forced to flee french first to Africa and since to Haiti. Besides from being a very well told story (when I first read it in my early teens I almost fell in love with the main character, Isa) it features a lot of very detailed drawings of ships from that era.

 

Find it at your local library or used book / comics dealer.

 

I wanted to include a pic of one of the drawings, but didnt succed. Search google for images for Les Passagers du vent or Passengers of The Wind and you will be able to see some examples of the graphical style of the series.

 

Cheers

Peter Wessel

Is it even possible to find these in English? Amazon and the library system here has got nothing.

Any ideas? I'm not about online PDFs, either. If they wanted me to buy them, they would sell them.
