Christopher Mills recently mentioned on his blog that he and Eduardo Barreto have a Sinbad comic they want to do. That’s the fourth one that I’ve heard about lately, but you know what? The more the merrier. Swashbucklers are cool and Sinbad is one of the best. As long as the comics are good – and I’m confident that Mills and Barreto’s will be – there’s room for all.
And isn’t it a ripe time for an Islamic hero? I’d love to read a Sinbad comic created by someone with an Islamic faith, but until that happens I’m happy to check out what’s available. Unfortunately, of the four Sinbad comics I know about, I’ll likely only check out two of them.
One that I won’t be reading is BlueWater’s Sinbad: Rogue of Mars. As cool as it is to have a line of comics inspired by Ray Harryhausen stories, BlueWater’s Ray Harryhausen Presents comics are a case of too-good-to-be-true. The stories I’ve read aren’t very exciting and the color palettes they use are offensively dull and ugly. It’s a shame, because I was really looking forward to that line.
