I finally got a chance to finally sit down and read "Greyhawk and the Starbucklers of the Caribbean" that i bought when i saw Mark at the Dallas Web Comic Con several months ago.

I really enjoyed it! I liked the story, i liked the banter, I liked the characters and the artwork looked great too.

I've never actually read a whole graphic novel before so some of the devices that translate cinematic conventions (like a "Voice over") into print baffled me at first but after re-reading a few pages i think I caught on to their cleverness.

I can see it being a successful movie. It oughta be!

I recommend it and I think there's some way to purchase it in some form or other at the WannaBe Pirates store

Thanks, Robert!

Really glad you liked it!

It's been so long ago that I don't really remember much about the writing of it, but I think I liked the idea of using the voice-overs as transitions to cut between scenes without having to do the usual "Meanwhile on planet such and such" captions.

The book being formatted landscape has been a stumbling block for getting it reprinted at one of the print-on-demand sites. I do hope to set up a way to sell some of the originals online, though.

psst: I think Lulu has a landscape oriented book option. I don't know if you checked that or not but that's the first thing that came to mind.

Oh and seconding the kudos for the Starbucklers book btw :-) look forward to more this year!

Thanks, Arlene! As much work as all the stuff is, I'm actually missing working on them.

Thanks for the tip. I'll check up on Lulu.
