Nice! :sweet: . Great to use some classic literature to enhance the drama :laugh: . Besides that, the comic, photos, and parchment borders are excellent :thumbup:

Very nice, I like how the lieutenant eppaulets are presented in a case (book), we bluecoats are so much more professional, the poop deck tragedy was just hilarious :head_back: .

Great layout, great photography, great details… Fantastic!

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

Nice photography and editing, I just find the images a bit small - to much border around. The story is also cool, and I like the idea of mixing the modfern era with it ...

Good looking comic.  Kind of hard to believe a bluecoat would allow his uniform to be dirtied.  Thanks for including me.  What does "a trip and a ruff" mean?

explain a joke is not my style... a trip you know what it is... a ruff, is this... combined means what you redcoats said... "a date", in this case, with your "gossip magazine" partner :laugh:

Thank you.  I get it now.  Ruff as in ruffles.  I thought it was ruff like in dog bark which didn't seem to make sense to me.  Why would the girl want a dog bark?   :classic:

dog bark? you mean "pet lamp-shade" also known as "elizabethan collar" ( :wink: :devil: )... usually confussed by the redcoats with the ruff (or rufles).... not "roofies" *oh2* ...but ruff! :laugh:

maybe... is cheaper get the epaulets in the redcoat markets than bricklink.. but you know the salers lie, especially if they are redcoats

Buuut, in your comic, its the pirates that are selling those pirated epaulets! :tongue:
We would never do that! Pirates are our common enemy! :classic:

First: Long live the Bluecoats! Second: Nice entry :wink:
It may look simple at first sight, but I can see you made quite a lot of MOCs for this comic.
Especially the toilet and the reader's room are well done.

I think this is one of the best comics so far showing the difference between redcoats and Bluecoats.
Hopefully the voters will also see this so they know which side they need to choose in the next ToR :classic:

you are wrong!... because it's implicit, the upper military ranks in the redcoats use to be pirates, take for example the commander red hat... former bluecoat soldier (expulsed for his dark past)... because he was known as capitan green hair.... pirate!!!

again, your eyes for the details surprise me! and yes, only the reader's room was repeated on the first and on the last picture, anything else were diferentes backgrounds.

and only the time will make that those poor redcoats realize their mistake!

we bluecoats have the heritage of the history... (more than 20 years fighting those pirates), and the order in our army... (two clear types of uniforms and clear ranks).... the best coat

so, glory to the bluecoats army, the first and the only one real Lego army  :sadnew: :thumbup:

Beside the funny story, I must say that I like all the details so much. My favorite is the book used as a box. Very clever!
