Four complete stories featuring the exhilarating piratical art of Philip Mendoza, Reg Bunn, Robert Forrest and John Millar Watt. With introductions to the four artists and their pirates work by David Ashford. The Rogue's Moon Thriller Picture Library #66 Art by Philip Mendoza Captain Kidd of the Spanish Main Thriller Picture Library #105 Art by Reg Bunn The Sea Hawk Thriller Picture Library #108 Art by Robert Forrest The Fortunes of Captain Blood Thriller Picture Library #145 Art by John Millar Watt Originally published in Thriller Picture Library issues 66, 105, 108 and 145, these four tales are rendered by four very different artists. In The Rogue's Moon Philip Mendoza splendidly captures the brutality and mendaciousness of cut-throat pirates. Reg Bunn's Captain Kidd of the Spanish Main has the feel of good, old-fashioned swashbuckling adventure, so prevalent in the movies of the 1950s. In The Sea Hawk, Robert Forrest brings the world of the Barbary pirates to fierce, vigorous life with his atmospheric and authentically-realised drawings. Vigorously drawn with a great sense of movement, The Fortunes of Captain Blood was John Millar Watt's very first adventure strip. Not content drawing all 64 pages of the comic, he also painted the cover!
