Pirate Eye: Exiled from Exile, written by Josiah Grahn with art by Carl Yonder, is now a four issue monthly mini-series.
Pirate Eye is a great example of a book I don’t read often enough, the premise is a solid detective noir, though set against the backdrop of ships and seafaring men.
The synopsis “[it’s] the story of Smitty, an ex-pirate turned detective. Banished from the sea, he is forced to take up residence in a port, relying on his brigand-honed skills as a ‘finder’ to make a living-until an old enemy exposes a secret that forces Smitty to flee for his life. With a price on his head on land and at sea, Smitty will have to survive long enough to find out what went wrong, how to make it right, and who is responsible.”
This is Jim Rockford with a cutlass! He’s a conman, a brigand, totally enjoyable. The plots are tight and the “cases” Smitty gets involved in are interesting and fun to follow. This is one of those books that should be selling more copies.
