I said a couple of days ago that I would do something special for the presentation of my latest ship...
well, this is it, I will however post the ship itself later in the MOC forum.
This comic features several signature figures (avatars) of Classic-Pirates members, more specifically those that had their input in my WIP frigate thread.
However, I didn't succeed in including everyone I wanted to, some people don't have an avatar/sigfig and I don't always have the parts to recreate one.
Also, if you're looking for a serious story...this is not it, I mean, the main character is buying baguettes for pete's sake .
On the other hand, this comic does show some new pictures of my latest ship, the French corvette Beatrix.
As for the plot, my sigfiggy invites over his friends to go on a sailing trip with my new ship.
I've been wanting to do another comic ever since the TORIII ended, originally I was going to make a celebration party comic but circumstances stopped from doing that.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed it, perhaps that's easier if your avatar is part of the comic .
I'm sorry for the open spot on page 6.
I will post the Beatrix tomorrow or the day after .

Many thanks for letting me join the maiden voyage.
I could have done with more olives on the pizza, though ...
But ... alas ... where is the monkey?

That guy with the beard's a real jerk, huh?
I only had the hair piece matching your sigfiggy but you had to be in it.
Glad you like it, I uploaded full size images of the pages although it's not really needed.

Best... pirate comic... ever!
I still don't know what scene to like best, you handling AC's pastry cravings is hilarious, the name of the port... splendid! Life vests... NO WAY!
Thanks for letting me join that maiden voyage, quite a joyride! The Beatrix turned out marvelous.
Oh, and that town looks strangely intriguing... so Blue... Hope to see more of it real soon...

I also had to grin because of the desperate face I make when it turns out there are no croissants left. But to be honest I would have liked frietjes met mayo too
It was an honour to be part of the maiden voyage of this beautiful piece of ship-building.
I hope she will travel far and wide, and it would be great if I could see her IRL some time.

the software I used is comic life 2, I found it via Frank Brick Wright originally during the Tournament of Retribution III, incase anyone else wants to direct a sequel .
Just saying, comic life is free to download (trial version of 30 days) and makes comic-building very easy.
I'll post the Beatrix as soon as my sister sends me the images she photoshopped for me (with background ).

How did you do it, photoshop or did you actually build my sigfig?
I notice I don't have my dark green plume, so I am assuming the latter.
I actually built your sigfig ofcourse, that's the goal of sigfigs really, only in the last couple of years the variety of minifigures became so great that it's getting really hard to cover everyone in a comic.

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
