“In the eary 1970s, DC published several stories starring a pirate named Captain Fear. Beautifully drawn by Alex Nino, the stories were an historical rat’s nest. The tales were set in the 1850s, more than a hundred years after the heyday of the Caribbean buccaneers, yet featured Spaniards wearing the helmets of conquistadors, unidentifiable but undeniably ancient firearms, and ship types (when they were identifiable) that were hundreds of years out of date!”
Walt Simonson, The Art of Walter Simonson, 1989
Simonson worked on a Captain Fear story with David Michelinie, published in the back of Unknown Soldier in the early eighties. And now, twenty years, he’s back. Here are some images that Walt has been posting. Aarrrr!
