The P.I. genre is pretty hot in comics right now, but no one does it like Pirate Eye. Seriously check this series out.
From Action Lab:
Pirate Eye, the genre mash up that took many by surprise is back! Pirate Eye: Exiled from Exile, written by Josiah Grahn with art by Carl Yonder, is now a four issue monthly mini-series. For the first issue of the series, there is a special variant cover painted by series artist Carl Yonder, limited to 1500 copies!
Combining elements of pirates and noir, Pirate Eye is 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.
Pirate Eye returns to stores as a four issue monthly tale starting in January, building upon everything from the first four one-shot Pirate Eye stories. Pirate Eye continues the tradition of using “the best of both genres without ever resorting to the clichés of either (PositivelyNerdy.com).”
Whether you are a new Pirate Eye fan or have been following the book all along, this is the perfect jumping on point for pirate, detective or comic fans.
“The story and art, work very well together and support each other to produce a great story. After seeing the preview I can’t say that I was shocked by how good it turned out, but I never expected this to be this damn good.(ComicBastards.com)”
