DIGITAL COMICS: She-Buccaneer picked up by Red 5
You may remember our coverage of She-Buckaneer from 2008. If not, welcome to Major Spoilers, we’ve been around for a while… The indie comic broke sales records for a self-published title, but since then the creative team of Heidi and Bill Hughes have been rather quiet. Until today…
Red 5 Comics has announced it is distributing the title through its digital banner, with the first seven issues, plus a collected volume. Since today is new comic book day, the issues will be available later this afternoon. And best of all, The Adventures of She-Buccaneer #1 is available free of charge for a limited for viewing on the web, iOS, and Android devices.
“When a reader downloads a Red 5 comic,” said Red 5 co-founder Paul Ens in a prepared statement, “they expect action, adventure, humor and fun. The Voyages of She-Buccaneer delivers on all of those notes.”
The voyages begin with the death of her one true love, Captain Calico Jack Rackham. In the depths of despair, she is lured into the tombs of Eden and offered a deal with the devil for the release of Jack’s soul. But before she can become a legend, she must battle the cannibal giants of Atlantis, the dragons of the Eastern Sea and escape sacrifice upon the steps of ancient Aztec temples.
