Arrrrgh, ye best be mountin’ that crow’s nest… The fourth installment of Disney’s mega-franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, hits theaters tomorrow, May 20th!

Jolly Roger Doormat
If you’re friends are heading into a home full of drunk and unsavory characters it’s probably best to give them a fair warning before they open the door.

Argh! Shiver me timbers! And other pirate clichés! Before you head off on Stranger Tides this weekend, you may want to snag a good book to read along the way. So might we suggest one of these great pirate comic books? From superheroes, to space pirates, these are the ten best pirate stories in comics:

10. The Pirates of Coney Island

A modern mish-mash of pirate clichés and hipster rhythms, writer Rick Spears and artist Vasillis Lolos did something radical with this eight issue mini-series from Image: they took the pirates out of the water. Instead, we’ve got a good old pirate story set on land – Coney Island, to be precise – with a one-eyed rascal, a gang who rams and boards cars rather than boats, and even the stray parrot or two. Only six of the eight issues have been released, but if you’re looking for a more up-to-date telling of the pirate legend, look no further.

9. Sea of Red


Avast ye landlubbers and take a gander at this review for Jakks Pacific’s Jack Sparrow action figure from their Pirates of the Caribbean 4 line of toys! As you can tell, this review called for the pirate mindest… so we just guzzled a bunch of rum and called it a day. *Hic* Johnny Depp reprises his role as Captain Jack Sparrow for the film and thus guaranteed his immortality in plastic. Not only that, but Jakks also included one of the coolest gimmicks we can think of – and we can think of a lot. On May 20th, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides sails its incredibly long title into theaters, but for now let’s look at this toy starting with the backstory from a recent Disney press release:

Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penélope Cruz), and he's not sure if it's love—or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.


On the night of February 1st, Disney Consumer Products held a release party, in New York City, to celebrate the upcoming toys based on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Jakks Pacific has scored the rights to make action figures from the film, and it just so happens they were unveiled at this very event! Are there pictures of these swashbuckling toys? You bet there are! In fact, were about to unleash the release dates and pictures for both the 4 inch line and 6 inch collector line! First though, we thought you’d like to see a toy your NEVER gonna get, cause we’re jerks like that sometimes.

During the Disney event, Ian McShane, who plays Blackbeard (and will always live in our hearts as the ass-kicking brothel-owner on Deadwood), was presented by Jakks Pacific with a one-of-a-kind 12” figure of himself!

Also, if you notice behind Ian, and his small doppleganger, there is a life-size Jack Sparrow statue built out of over 150,000 Lego bricks! Read More...
