Flintlock Book Five


“This is one fine looking book, and offers its readers a polished, professional, immensely entertaining read from cover to cover.” – Pipedream Comics

What Is Flintlock?

Flintlock is an ongoing anthology set in the Eighteenth Century, featuring highwaymen, pirates and more. Each story takes place at some point between 1701 and  1800 with all the characters co-existing in a shared historical timeline.

 “A great title for a great concept. It's a wonderful adventure story with astonishing attention to period detail.” – Jason Cobley

How is Flintlock different, what should we expect?

One big difference is that none of  Flintlock’s leads are what you may expect. Both the lead highwayman and pirate characters – Lady Flintlock and Shanti the Pirate Queen – are women, presented as realistic, rounded characters rather than the overly sexualised female characters we usually see in comics. Others like the Clockwork Cavalier are a bit of a surprise. The shared timeline is unusual too as it means that although the various lead characters may never actually meet, the actions they take individually will sometimes have consequences on each other years, even decades, apart.

“I love Flintlock. I want to read more. If this is an ongoing comic, I want to keep supporting it.” –

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
