Bad Idea Gives A First Look At ‘Pyrate Queen’ #1 By Milligan, Pollina And Bonvillain
by Olly MacNamee
Yesterday we gave you a first look at two of the “Final Five” titles to be put out by the comic book publisher currently known as Bad Idea. And today we mop up the other three across the morning, starting with the high sea adventure, Pyrate Queen #1 from the creative team of writer Peter Milligan, artist Adam Pollina and colour artist Tamra Bonvillain.
“This September, embark on a tale of love, loss, life, death and bloody revenge! Meet Monday Ryan, a pyrate with a bad reputation and a price on her head. To be a pyrate is to live a short and merry life and to live it free. It ends for most with a length of rope and a four-foot drop.
After a series of successful attacks, Monday Ryan, her husband, and her crew of bandits are targeted and pursued relentlessly by the British Royal Navy. When a violent trap leads to their capture, Monday and crew are fitted for the gallows — until the Royal Navy learns that Monday’s pregnant. Civility prevents the hanging of a pregnant woman, and Monday is spared the noose, but her crew and husband are not. Set adrift on a small raft and left to her fate on the open sea, Monday vows that the life growing inside her will be born into a world where its father’s death has been avenged. She will find and kill every last soul responsible for her husband’s death, and her baby will enter into this world free of vengeance, free of bloodshed, and free of a future drenched in violence.”
Look out for Pyrate Queen #1 (of 4) Wednesday 1st September at participating stores.
