Pirate Eye Continues with Issue 3!

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 third of four issues.

Combining elements of pirates and noir, Pirate Eye is the story of Smitty, an ex-pirate turned detective. Confounded at every turn, Smitty finds himself two steps behind Burroughs as their old rivalry reaches new heights of mutual hatred. As his options for survival and freedom dwindle, he’ll have to learn to think like his greatest rival-and come to grips with how similar the two of them are.

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.”

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.
