We know it's important for readers to let their local comic book stores know about independent comics that interest them, but maybe we're not doing enough to make sure everyone knows. We're only a small publisher, you know? So we enlisted the help of the hero of our new comic book series Captain Blood (and Captain Blood writer Matthew Shepherd... OK, this was all his idea, actually) to help convince everyone.
So, please prepare yourself for the tropical adventure "Captain Blood and the Peril of Indie Comics" It's new comic book day in tropical Barbados, and there's nothing to be found at the local Comic Book Shoppe to tempt Miss Arabella Bishop. The gallant Captain Blood decides the time is right for an insurrection! Of comic book readers educated about what they want and how to get it, that is. The opinions of Captain Peter Blood do not necessarily reflect those of SLG Publishing. He makes some good points, though. For a preview of the actual comic book series Captain Blood, click here.
Pages 2-3 follow under the cut after page one, or you can read the whole thing at our website.
Captain Blood #1 by Matthew Shepherd and Michael Shoyket is in stores now, by god!
