So I was wondering the interwebs the other day and came across the comic series "The Mercenary Sea" by Image comics. Man this is some awesome pulpy goodness. I have to get the TPB of this. I think I know of a good item now for the christmas list.
Heres the burb for it from Image.
Action and adventure set in 1938—The South Seas. Japan has invaded China. War in Europe is imminent. Ex-bootlegger Jack Harper captains The Venture, a refitted German U-Boat, with a crew of expats, mercenaries and treasure hunters. They do whatever it takes to stay afloat, often running up against pirates, headhunters, spies, and soldiers. They’re always one step away from the greatest score of their lives...or their certain demise.
You should totally check it out. But hey don't take my word for it. Take to word of someone famous.
