Cover Reveal: The Coxwain by Dann Rei


In the fall of 1946, Petty Officer Daniel Myers is assigned to helm the largest ship in the world, the recently commissioned USS Midway aircraft carrier - a floating city of 4500 souls on post-war cold-weather operations in the North Atlantic.

His commanding officer - a decorated hero of the Pacific War - Captain Giovanni Bove, is his one guide point in a stormy sea of doubts and hopeless desires. As a young man untested by war, Daniel struggles to earn his place at his captain's side before circumstance drifts them apart.

The intriguing story by Itoshi is well matched by Dann Rei's striking artwork in a manga style in keeping with the yaoi look we have all come to know. It's a story where the sun, sea and sex meets inevitable romance, then love and then the drama starts...




What more would an avid reader of yaoi want from such a new and interesting title?
