Tomorrow (10th January 2018) sees the release of Lost Fleet – Corsair #5 in comic shops and digital platforms, the final issue in what will hopefully be the first in a series of tales based on the best-selling Lost Fleet military SF novels. Both comics and books are written by New York Times best-selling author John Hemry, writing as Jack Campbell.

It was a genuine pleasure to edit this book for Titan Comics, for the most part, which offers plenty of spacefaring action and intrigue, introducing new characters to the Lost Fleet universe.

Set after the end of a century-long war between too space empires, Captain Michael Geary – an Alliance officer, presumed MIA – awakes to find himself aboard an enemy Syndic vessel. Forming an uneasy pact with the rebel Syndics, Michael sets out to save not only his fellow prisoners but their jailers too – on the run from a government determined to crush any uprising. But can he live up to the legend colouring his family name?

The collection of this first series is scheduled for release next month.

My thanks to all the creative team on this book, and Titan staffers past and present for their work on this book, and every reader  who’s given this title their support. Fingers crossed for further adventures!
