A time-jumping techno-fantasy adventure from His Dark Materials writer Phillip Pullman and artist Fred Fordham. The crew of the ghost ship Mary Alice is comprised of sailors from various moments in history, who sail the seas looking for a way back to their own time. John Blake, a mathematical genius, may have a connection to the ship’s predicament and to its ultimate fate. When a girl named Serena comes aboard, they try and find a way back to her time while the sinister, mysterious Dahlberg Corporation pursues them for their own nefarious purpose. For a comics-writing neophyte, Pullman does a terrific job, creating a wonderful mix of classic British adventure story blended with Tintin-style intrigue, all ably abetted by Fordham’s clean line and lush palette.

The tip-in bookplate is printed at A6 (4-1/8 x 5-7/8 in) on high quality card, and is limited to 200 numbered copies, signed by Phillip Pullman and Fred Fordham.
