The rousing Lost Fleet military sci-fi novels of Jack Campbell have been a staple of the speculative fiction world since The Lost Fleet: Dauntless was first published in 2006.

This thrilling six-book series is set during a centuries-old interstellar conflict and chronicles the events of an ongoing war between two human factions, the Alliance and the Syndics. Within that overarching plot we're treated to an armada of spaceships trapped deep behind enemy lines, and the exploits of one John "Black Jack" Geary, a spacefaring hero who must live up to his legend and save his people from annihilation.

Campbell, a pen name for writer John G. Hemry, ended the series in 2010 with the release of The Lost Fleet: Victorious, but expanded the saga with three spin-off titles: Beyond The Frontier, The Lost Stars, and The Genesis Fleet.

A new 112-page Lost Fleet TPB graphic novel is cruising into orbit this spring from Titan Comics and we've got an exclusive preview and trailer to present for your examination.

The Lost Fleet: Corsair was a five-issue miniseries offered up over this past summer and concluding January 10, written by Campbell and paired with art by Andre Siregar and Sebastian Cheng. This new edition collects the entire run in a brand new softcover which brings home all the fantastic, galaxy-hopping, space opera action when it lands on March 18.
