The True Story of Ben Avery . . . the PIRATE!

Here's a comic from an old public domain comic book called "PIRATES". Alas, this is issue 4 of the series . . . the last issue.

It's the tale of Long Ben Avery, a pirate who I have taken a liking to. Mostly because he shares my name. He's an historical figures -- an actual pirate that sailed the seas, looting people.

I'm amazed how closely Long Ben Avery's pirating career has mirrored my own career in comics. :)

As usual, click on the image for a larger version that you can read.

It was scanned by someone called "King Faraday", so many thanks to him!
