Discover the birth of the legend!

The world knows of Blackbeard, the king of pyrates, but few know of the man behind the legend, Edward Teach. What turned an ordinary boy into one of the most feared pirates of his time? How did he fashion a persona so terrible that pirates and governments alike feared him and became obsessed with his destruction? What is the truth behind the motivations of the misunderstood pirate known as Blackbeard?

In this beautifully illustrated graphic novel, artist Mario Guevara, writers Robert Place Napton (Battlestar Galactica Origins, Dark Wraith of Shannara), Jamie Nash (Seventh Moon screenwriter), and original The Blair Witch Project and Seventh Moon producer Gregg Hale and Writer/Director Eduardo Sanchez bring you a bold new reinterpretation of the Blackbeard legend!
