When she saw her love Calico Jack Rackham hung above the docks of Port Royal, she thought her freebooting days were at an end. Aye, but they’d just begun! Soon she’d find her pockets overflowing with treasure and a bargain struck in the tombs of Adam and Eve… a wicked accord to free Jack’s soul from damnation’s flames. Upon such a task she would do battle with all manner of vile monsters, wizards, witches and mythic beasts. Will Hughes’ classic good girl art shines throughout. Every page is full of colorful detail and imaginative creatures from realms beyond belief. As always Heidi Hughes employs authentic, yet familiar, pirate lingo to spin a yarn of high seas adventure where cutlasses clash and sea dogs swagger.
I grew up with the original Clash of the Titans. I also used to watch the Sinbad movies (this was when we only had 4 channels in the UK!) and I loved them!
Volume 1 of The Voyages of the She Buccaneer covers issues #1-7 and has a bonus selection of art, covers and photos!
Each issue is epic in itself, so the 200 pages of story create something special.
Each issue brings you something along the lines of Sinbad – Drama, comedy, the high seas, swashbuckling, magic, monsters and armies.
There’s more – Wizards, gems, dragons and of course – Pirates!
The art is brilliant – detailed with the right mixes of cartoon, realism and fantasy!
The story is well paced – there is, of course an overreaching arc here which is covered over the seven issues. But each issue makes a good story itself!
In all this is a brilliant series, which may have not been on my pull list, but volume 2 sure will be!
The first issue is free on Comixology so you can see what you think!
