Warship Jolly Roger by Sylvain Runberg, Miquel Montlló

The prisoners have broken out and while those who instigated it are dead and many others have been recaptured, the prisoner the president is most afraid of has escaped.  He should be afraid.  He railroaded Munro into prison for war crimes when he was following orders...

Magnetic Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published August 9th.

This a graphic novel with luscious artwork by Miquel Montllo.  Sylvain Runberg has written a story that resembles a Star Wars scene.  It's a nasty world in the future where those with money and power rule and scapegoats are created when necessary.

Munro takes three other prisoners with him.  It's escape or go in front of a firing squad, so they decide to take their chances.  Munro takes charge but everyone has important things to do if they are going to stay alive.

Starships in the sky with doublecrossers everywhere makes the story exciting.  Thirteen is young man who doesn't talk but has an owl drone who is deadly.  The girl is only along for the ride because Munro won't let her go.  And the other man is a con man who kills so there are no witnesses.  This mismatched team works well together.

They kidnap the president, Munro destroys his face, and then he sets him free in a pod.  The president then kills his son.  If he thought Munro was a problem before, I can guarantee you he will be now.

I'm going to have to read this next book in this series and see who wins.
