Captain Blood and the Peril of Indie Comics


Matthew Shepherd, Michael Shoyket and David Hedgecock rework a few pages from Captain Blood to address the problems independent comics have with distribution, ultimately asking readers to “demand more from comics.” And, in one panel, not to download comics … which seemed very unpirate-like.



That was awesome! I’m looking forward to Captain Blood.

Issue one is in stores already, Matthew!

Captain Blood may be a pirate, but he stands firmly in defense of intellectual property. He’s very iconoclastic. His iPod is full of songs purchased legally through (He draws the line at crazy DRM.)

My comic shop claims to know nothing about it. Hmm.
