SLG's getting back into more single-issue comics and kicking off the trend with an adaptation of Rafael Sabatini's Captain Blood. I reviewed the first issue for Robot 6 and liked it a lot. You can also check out the trailer:
No Quarter cancelled
Zenescope's pirate comic, written by the guy behind Key West's Pirate Soul museum has been cancelled before it began. I'm not heart-broken about it. Based on the cover, I don't think it's the kind of pirate comic I would've enjoyed.
Polly and the Pirates sequel
Polly and the Pirates, on the other hand, is exactly the kind of pirate comic I enjoy. So I'm thrilled that Ted Naifeh's planning a sequel. Unfortunately, he won't be drawing it. According to CBR's report from the Oni panel at Emerald City ComiCon:
...Polly and the Pirates is expected to resume once a new artist for the series is recruited. A fan asked Naifeh where he found the inspiration for all of the inventive designs for the ships seen in the book. “I live in San Francisco,” Naifeh said, “and there’s a lot of kooky houses around there.” He thought to himself, “You know what would be cool is if they were giant flying ships…”Take me to the treasure!
Found at Pulp of the Day.
Your 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Picture of the Day
By Alphonse de Neuville.
"I can talk to fish!"
The Aquaman Shrine's got a whole set of links to various Aquaman items. I always love it when Rob does those posts. As much as I think I'm on top of the Aquaman happenings, he always manages to find some stuff that I miss. Like this comic strip.
The All-New All-Different Aquaman
By Christopher Copeland.
I don't think I'd want to see this become the permanent design for Aquaman, but I'd sure like to read a comic with this guy in it.
