The Black Sable #1

September 19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day so, to celebrate, I will write this entire article in pirate talk.

No, I won’t do that. That’s just a pain in the butt for you, the reader, and me, the pirate. I will, however, give you a review on the first issue of Zenescope’s new six part mini-series about space pirates, The Black Sable.

The status quo has changed, making this the PERFECT jump on point for new readers!
