Media Release — 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, returns with the second of four issues.
Combining elements of pirates and noir, Pirate Eye is the story of Smitty, an ex-pirate turned detective. Smitty has lost everything twice-over, and now nothing is out of bounds as he desperately seeks a score large enough to buy his way back to safety. His former crewmate, now a feared captain, means to ensure Smitty’s continued misery, instead. They can’t both succeed.
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.
“As if they possessed their own story-telling treasure map, Grahn and Yonder have stumbled onto a gold mine of possibilities with Pirate Eye. But rather than horde the treasure themselves, they’ve decided to share it with all of us (PositvelyNerdy.com).”
“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)”
