Red 5 Comics does us ALL a favor and has published The Voyages of the She Buccaneer Volume One digitally. Yes, I’d LOVE a physical copy of this excellent collection, but beggars can’t be choosers and hopefully if this does well enough, maybe Red 5 can convince the Hughes’ to put out another She Buccaneer comic that’s not digital.
I loved this comic back in 2008 and I love it just as much now! Writer Heidi Hughes does an awesome job of spinning a perfect pirate tale with a strong female lead character. And yes, The She-Buccaneer is a buxom brunette bombshell, but after a while you don’t even notice that, because the story is so entertaining, you get lost in the characters and events. OK, I’m lying. You TOTALLY notice it ALL through the book. Despite that, this a book that will lose you in its pages for an afternoon. You are quite literally transported to another time and place and withing the first few pages you are sucked into this incredible world and almost nothing short of your house being on fire will tear you away from these pages. Thank your lucky stars that you’re reading this as a collection, because a one-month wait between issues would be a killer (and believe me, it was!)!
