“Bonnie Lass” Ready to Set Sail

Red 5 Comics is pleased to announce the newest addition to their acclaimed line-up, “Bonnie Lass: The Legend” from creators Michael Mayne and Tyler Fluharty.

“Bonnie Lass” spins the yarn of a brash and daring young heroine and her two muscle-headed sidekicks as they set out to build a reputation as swashbuckling pirates to be envied and feared. Bent on overshadowing her father, the infamous Cutlass, Bonnie’s after the one treasure he did not claim — the Eye of the Leviathan. But there are other forces at work seeking to claim it for themselves.

Bonnie’s world blends the familiar cultural motifs of the most legendary sea-faring pirates of the 1700s and 1800s with a the tone of an American western and a dash of modern-day technology like automobiles and GPS. The unique setting lends unexpected and wildly entertaining twists to a traditional pirate tale.

“Bonnie Lass” was created, written and illustrated by Michael Mayne and co-written by Tyler Fluharty. Mayne is a freelance illustrator and graphic designer with over twenty-five small press children’s books and novel covers to his credit. He recently illustrated the “Gearz/VSS” comic from Bluewater Productions.

“Bonnie Lass” marks the first title in a line of digital-debut comic series from Red 5 Comics. These titles are the best of the creator-owned off-beat, fresh-talent, eclectic or genre stories looking to build an audience and acclaim before making the leap to print editions.
