"But you're in far more peril from your own petticoats and ruffles" is the exact line I used that led to my loss of virginity.

Believe me, it's for women too. I'd lose my dress and my resolve like that *insert snapping sound* for Pirate Batman.

Not just any woman either--that's Pirate Catwoman, springing her trap!

One of the best Elseworlds, in my opinion. Lovely art, and a story full of authentic-feeling touches, from the speech patterns to narration that reads like a sea chanty.

Dear Mr. Sims:

In perusing thru your wonderful blog, I have come to find out that you have ignored the great Bill Mantlo's finest work in all the known universe. I am of course speaking of the Rocket Raccoon mini series. For shame Mr. Sims, for shame. Please correct this matter post hast...

I am writing both Marvel and DC to demand a Pirate Batman/Pirate Thing crossover.

I didn't think ANYTHING could top Sims' post here...

until I just read jeff reints' comment/suggestion of a Pirate Batman / Pirate Thing team up.

Sweetness, would I love that!

This Elseworlds was fantastic, but F.F. # 5 was AWESOME!

NOW, just thinking about the possibilities...

Can I BUY some of that peril, please?

The world has become a vast horizon. I've just found out there's a pirate Batman.

...never be the same...

So is pirate Batman's first mate named Robin or Sparrow?

Pirate Batman?!?! BLASPHEMY!!! Batman is, and forever will be, a ninja.

Dude -

Don't you get it?
Batman is a Ninja AND a Pirate. That's an unbeatable combination, like combining liquor and booze!

It's a level of awesomness you just can't beat.
