Top Cow have a new swashbuckling new series sailing into comic shops this May. A Man Among Ye by writer Stephanie Phillips, artist Craig Cormack, colorist Lauren Affe and letterer Troy Peteri promised nautical naughtiness, aquatic adventure and good old fashioned piracy courtesy of the book’s heroes and pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read. As well as the odd dash of rum thrown in for good measure too, no doubt.
Set during the waning days of piracy, when men were men (and the best pirates were…women?), writer Stephanie Phillips (Butcher of Paris, Descendent) and artist Craig Cermak (Red Team, Voltron) bring to life the tale of Anne Bonny and Mary Read as they hoist the skull and crossbones, draw cutlasses, and seek a treasure that will make them legends. In an era when sailing with women was thought to be bad luck, Anne and Mary might just be the only people capable of saving the pirate way of life.
Check out a first look of the forthcoming A Man Among Ye #1, coming out Wednesday May 13th from Top Cow/Image Comics.
