Preview: The Sea Ghost #1
Here’s something a little different: Jay Piscopo, who writes and draws The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli graphic novels, has spun off a comic featuring one of the characters from that series, The Sea Ghost. Here’s the promo text:
Sea Ghost discovers a dangerous secret when a mysterious sphere transports him to an alien world locked in an endless war. Can he convince the Simas and Phlan to stop fighting and unite against the real enemy? Find out in The Sea Ghost #1, sub-titled “The Sea Ghost in the Machine!”
I like Jay’s penciling, and he has a knack for classic characters. Check out the preview below, and then check out the comic—it’s supposed to be in comics shops on March 30, but we hear it has been reaching the shelves a little early.
