Hey bookworms! It has been a while! And by that, I mean about a week. I have been reading like crazy and am behind in writing reviews because I have about 3 in the queue right now. My latest read was a Cyclops (from the X-men) graphic novel called A Pirate’s Life For Me.
Synopsis: RESCUED! But by whom? And is it really a rescue…or does this put Scott at greater risk than before? And what bounty are they hunting? Lots of shooting and things blowing up! The bad news: the Starjammers are about to die! The good news: Cyclops is no longer a Starjammer. Scott Summers is aboard a new space pirate ship, with a cruel, cutthroat captain, and a crew of criminals and killers. None of them trust Scott– and a few just might want to kill him! But, hey, that Captain’s daughter is kinda cute, right?
Comicbook reviews are always short and sweet so I will keep the tradition with this one. I really enjoyed seeing Cyclops as a kid and bonding with his father. And space pirates?! I mean that is pretty awesome.
I do have one question though….where was Alex? You know, his younger brother?
The graphic novel had a pretty good pace and kept me interested. I thought it was for a pretty young audience until that ending which surprised me. I can honestly say that I dd not expect it to take the turn it did.
I believe Cyclops is a pretty underrated X-men and deserves more respect considering he is powerful enough to blow a hole through a mountain. SO getting a comic just centered on him and his struggles was fun and enjoyable.
I would say to pick this one up if you want a quick read about adventure and space pirates!
Book Rating: 4/5
You can buy this book on Amazon and find it on Goodreads.
Disclaimer: I bought this graphic novel with my own money and read it because I wanted to.

I’m glad you enjoyed the graphic novel! I always love a good book with space pirates.
Yea I like when the Xmen are explored in their own storylines.
