Spycraft and submersibles – our two hapless cavalrymen have theirwork cut out for them!

Even as the sea blockade by the Union Navy slowly strangles the South, the picket ships begin to mysteriously blow up one after another. Lincoln, worried that the war could stretch on too long if the Rebels are resupplied, orders that the Confederates’ secret weapon be identified. That means sending spies to Charleston, though, in the heart of the enemy’s territory. And who will be the two unlucky fools the brass entrusts with such a dangerous mission … ?

'I think that The Bluecoats genuinely has something in it for all ages. [...] It’s got a good solid plot, a wry sense of humour and some thought provoking undertones.' Dion Winton-Polak [Geek Syndicate]

The 12th volume of a humorous series that also shows the horror and absurdity of war

The Belgian-born author Raoul Cauvin enjoys continued success and is currently writing 11 different cartoon series. In 2006 alone, he had six entries on the bestselling new comics list in France, including Cedric – also published in English by Cinebook – and The Bluecoats. Also born in Belgium, Lambil published his first comic, Sandy, in 1959. He has drawn 45 volumes of The Bluecoats since taking over from Salvérius, the series’ original illustrator, who died in 1972.
