The Rundown: Anne’s defense of the young stowaway could cost her more than she thinks.

Young stowaway Mary Read has been rescued by Anne despite the objections of many in the crew. With the young girl under the protection of the Captain and Anne, the pirate proceeds to teach the young girl about life on the ship and why she became a pirate in the first place.


When the crew takes leave on shore, a member of Anne’s crew decides to take matters into his own hands in his attempt to get rid of her. At the same time, the new governor of Fort Nassau is sending a deadly message to all pirates. A message that comes at the end of a rope.

The Story: Stephanie Phillips delivers some intense storytelling in this issue, but doesn’t neglect the heart as we learn more about Mary and see her connection to Anne grow over the course of the issue. Anne is presented as a strong character who has a presence in every scene she’s in. That presence is engaging and the rest of the characters become more layered because of it. The second issue continues an enjoyable story with some interesting twists and turns and a well done cliffhanger that makes you want to read more.

The Art: Craig Cermak delivers some beautiful art throughout this issue. There is a beautiful, classic quality to the style of art in this issue and it enhances the story by giving it a timeless visual appeal.
