Webcomic / The Pirate Balthasar

Go To

Take a bunch of faceted hotties of both sexes, all of different ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation as mains along with colourful side characters, add some thorough historical research on pirates and 17th century society in Europe, romance, comedy, many many tropes (all very sensibly used), some Disney-flavoured art, blend them together and get ready to happily feast your eyes, mind and soul on The Pirate Balthasar, a Historical Fiction treat. It has also won the 2011 Best Romance SmackJeeves Award too.


The plot of The Pirate Balthasar is as follows: Wilson Kane wins a fortune and his future bride at a game of dice from the former pirate Balthasar. When he decides to go and get the girl, he does it the pirate way: by kidnapping her. Not only does he find out that she is more than a pirate could ever want from a wife... but that she has four identical sisters as well! This discovery hits him when his men, who were supposed to help him out, each kidnaps a different girl... and none of them gets the right one! But Wilson Kane wants the girl he had met and no one else! Luckily for him, it will be the girl herself to solve his problem and put an end to his dilemma... a solution that will eventually fling her into a new way of life, aboard the Alidivento, across the Mediterranean sea!

The webcomic is available both in English and in Italian at the sites listed on the author's blog. Lots of Bonus Material there too.
