The Neptune is gone, stolen by the Indian guide Moc, or maybe by Guiana-Capac’s malevolent gods. The last members of the ill-fated expedition—Silver, Dantzig, Livesey and Bonnet—are stranded in the ancient city. Far from being broken, however, they will face head-on what lies inside the gargantuan ruin, each for his own reasons: revenge, duty, gold... or to rescue the beautiful Lady Hastings. For Moc isn’t done with them, and he has plans for Vivian.
Oddly enough, this last week I’ve watched Robert Newton in Treasure Island and Long John Silver so I’m kind of hearing old Silver “Arr-ing” and such!
This is a wonderfully written series and we’ve need good, new pirate comics for a long while. The art I love –the ancient city is very ominous looking but also spectacular.
Next Long John Silver review will be entirely in pirateses, arr, shiver me bones pon th’ eyes o’ a dead un if it aint!
