Nautical Adventure and Extreme Drunkenness: Exclusive Comics Excerpt From Far Arden

Pirates! Sea battles! Polar bears! Sword fights! Alluring damsels! Annoying undergrads! And a mysterious tropical island hidden in the farthest north! That's just the beginning of the list of things that appear in Kevin Cannon's madcap nautical-adventure comic Far Arden, but we've run out of exclamation points, so we must leave the rest to your imagination.

Oh no we don't! (We found another one.) For here ye may find an exclusive seventeen-page preview of Far Arden, in which crusty seaman Army Shanks comes close to learning the secret of the mythical land that gives the book its name. Riotous, exciting, and ridiculous, Far Arden comes out from Top Shelf next month.
