There be pirates here!

Ahoy, me hearties! Sauntering by the old schooner SwanShadow for Comic Art Friday, are ye? Well, matey, this be not just any Comic Art Friday...

...this here be Comic Art Pirates Day!

Your crusty old seadog, Cap'n Swan, will be introducin' ye to some swashbucklin' lads and lasses from the comics pages, what got a little pirate in 'em! How can ye tell? Some ye can see by their buccaneer boots — the favored footwear of well-dressed pirates everywhere. Some show their pirate nature by their flashin' steel or their blazin' pistols. Some ye can tell just by the cut o' their jib that they got pirate blood coursin' through their veins. Savvy?

Enough jaw-flappin' now... let's talk pirates!

Buccaneer boots 'n' fishnets... the Black Cat and the Black Canary definitely got pirate in 'em.

With stars tattooed on their brawny chests and buccaneer boots on their stalwart feet, Captain America and the U.S. Agent got pirate in 'em.

Misty Knight and the Black Knight — they could be black knights of the seven seas for sure.

Elektra and Black Lightning, they got pirate in 'em.

Green Arrow couldn't have more pirate in him if he tried.

Hawkeye and Lady Rawhide? Aye, pirates they be!

Lara Croft, she be a modern-day tomb-raidin' pirate.

Power Girl and Luke Cage (they call him Power Man, y'know) got pirate written all over 'em.

The Phantom and the Blonde Phantom be flyin' the Jolly Roger right enough.

Dynamo's got the boots, Nick Fury the eyepatch and pistol — ahoy, there be pirates here!

Red Sonja was a pirate before we was callin' ourselves pirates!

Now how about yerself, ye scandalous son of a biscuit?

Got a little pirate in ye?

And that there be yer Comic Art Friday. ARRRRRRR!

I could have sworn that there were pirates in the Hyborian Age (re: Red Sonja)

Ye missed Aquaman, he's got the meanest hook hand in the 7 Seas! Or Teen Titans Cyborg: the most hi-tech version of peg leg, hook hand, etc you can imagine.

The only way Nick Fury could be any more pirate would be if he had eyepatches on both eyes.

Cap'n Swan, ye've been swillin' too much grog. Needs I remind ye that The Phantom be the sworn enemy of we pirates? From Wikarrrpedia:

When a new Phantom takes the task from his dying father, he swears the Oath of the Skull: "I swear to devote my life to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty, and injustice, in all their forms, and my sons and their sons shall follow me".

Arrr, etc.

Lee: Welcome aboard, matey! Glad we tickled yer funny bone. ARRRRR!

DMarks: Avast there! I haven't a picture with a hook-handed Aquaman. But I'll give ye an ARRRRR! for the mention!

Cap'n England: Ahoy, ye old salt! Ye got me on the Phantom's oath, but I be tellin' ye: A man who wears a skull ring gotta have some pirate in 'im. ARRRRRR!
