Pirate Captain Smiling Jack D’Arcy brings to you his meticulously calculated lists of the best of all things piratical!
Part the Firste details the best and greatest pirate comics ever made! Just don’t tell Cap’n Link-ARRRRRR-a!
Nice one Spoony!
Awsome review Spoony ARRR
lol, god damn it.
Alright then! We got ourselves a show!
That was awesome, i hope to see more of these. So delightfully random!
One Piece is the best!
Why do Pirates be Pirates? ‘Cause they ARRRR!
HA HA HA *SLAP* OW! I hit myself.
If that wasn’t the best excuse to test out a green screen ;)
hahaha, simple and perfect it be. Yaaarr..
…He may have actually been drunk.
Still awesome though.
The others were good as well.
Bah! One Piece is crap, and I’ll have any filthy scallywag who says otherwise keelhauled!
review shows like the extreme dinosaurs like that! or imitate a borg and talk like a Jamaican
Yaaar, ye be doin’ a fine job representin’ us pirates.
Now swab the deck, ye filthy bilge rat.
You actually dressed up like a pirate, and went through all the effort for just a minute of video?! WTF
Either you are really bored, or you really like dressing up like a pirate.
I just linked the Review to a friend of mine who hates you for not liking Final Fantasy 8. After I showed him some other Reviews he began to kinda like you…. but his second dearest thing in the world after ff is probably One Piece =D=D
Hilarious. Yaaaarrrrr, and such.
yar I like sie second Pirate video -rey!
“You actually dressed up like a pirate, and went through all the effort for just a minute of video?! WTF
Either you are really bored, or you really like dressing up like a pirate.”
Id say its a combination of the two :D
speaking of Watchmen spoony, when I went to the supermarket last week i saw that watchmen was sold together with the movie about the piratebook in watchmen, haven’t checked it out yet
Very nice mannerism!
I like One Peice.
dude, dude.. its talk like a pirate day. not talk like adam savage doing his best english accent day.
funny though. however i can safely say my american is better than your english
Yep, One Piece is crap. :3
Awesome Vids as always. xD
YES YES Bless someone that ears the voice of reason
One Piece Sucks, I hate that animation, hate it so much xD
P.S. Oh and Spoony if it was a top 10, didnt you mean to say, in the video, “Number 10″? =P
What about Outlaw Star? They had space pirates……who could cast magic……and robots, who became a large flying disc…..and telepathic cats…..and I think they had a werewolf……Well at least it was better than One Piece..ROFL
That was good. I didn’t expect any Pirate Day shenanigans from you Spoony.
“its talk like a pirate day. not talk like adam savage doing his best english accent day”
yes, for God’s sake let’s keep serious and historically accurate the mock-holiday devoted to a made-up accent
One Piece is by far the most awesome pirate-themed comic ever made (It doesn’t really having anything to do with pirates in the first place, but it has so many memorable moments it’s impossible not to like it)
“One Piece Sucks, I hate that animation, hate it so much xD”
right, just like how all those old Mario games suck because they aren’ta3D first person shooters.
So random, yet well done! Alas, there’d be few pirate comic matie, such as: Terry and the pirates, Batman: Leatherwing, The Read Seas and of course One Piece.
what? of course it’s about pirates, just the main characters are a different type of pirate.
…Corto Maltese? It’s italian, but it’s a comic as far as I know. Plus, hearing some on the side, The Blackbeard Legacy, Pirate Club, and The Voyage of She-Buccaneer.
There’s more– but yeah. Capes are just the mainstream.
I appreciate the joke, but still.
How ’bout the Monkey Island comic (I think it may be a fan made comic though).
Never read it, but I like the Monkey Island games.
well theres one piece, which is the highest selling shounen jump title ever in japan (take that one piece haters!)
Plus adding in Oda’s imagination and creativity, there never a dull moment in it.
yeah pirates that don’t steal, or drink Rum, or do any kidn of thing Pirates do…….
Saying “One peice is duh bast comic of pirates evarrr” is liek saying that Naruto is the best ninaj manga ever.
One piece, Bleach and Naruto the trinity of overrated modern mangas, Dragon ball is the father of overrated mangas, in sumary anyone who thinks the most popular Jump Battle mangas are the best sucks
Hurray! The SCUMM Bar theme!
Spoony, you almost killed me… No I really am serious… I was eating while watching this and at first I didn’t understood and the second time I was laughing so hard I choked on my damn food AND I’VE SEEN THE OTHER SIDE!! IT’S BOOTYFULL! And I think I like Smiling Jack more than Insano… or not… I can’t decide.
Oh yeah btw why don’t you do a let’s play of one of curse of monkey island? umm maybe I shouldn’t have said that..
o actually wonders if one piece hater have ever read teh manga..i admith that the animation kind of sucks.specially now..but god damn… the comic is so freaking goood..
know people who just started the manga and read about 400 cap or more in a few days…is that good…
oh I ahve read it, and its really don’t worth all the nosie people make about it, I have also read Naruto, and Bleach, so I can say that they suck
Hail to the FSM Arrrrgh!!!
You all may touched by his noodly appendage Arrrrrrrgghh!
And a happy “talk like a pirate” day everyone Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggghhh!!!!!!!!!!!!
*unenthusiastically* Yarr… Wenches, and such…
Seriously, though, Awesome
Arrrgghhh!!! He didn’t even list any Errol Flynn movies he didn’t.
because this was about comics
hey what gives WK? All mario games are awesome…and I’m not really a 3D FPS fan boy either…I’m Portuguese so i can not give my “dislikes” of One Piece with ditail…one of the aspects are the animation, its not my genre, even the story is not that good…Some of my friends like One Piece, but I dont see what it haves to offer =)
you misunderstood what WK said, he didn’t said that mario makes sucked, he tried to compare a classic like mario being underrated by Halo people with people not jerking off to one peice because it isn’t that good
I may have to be keelhauled then because One Piece is six shades of badass dipped in chocolate. One of the best adventure comics ever written period.
it’s hard to name somethign as the best of its kind wen you don’t even have anymore points of reference, the only thing One Piece has is a good setting, the story sucks, the characters are all manga archetypes and well it sucks
I know I was just joking about that comparising…but I really dont think that One Piece is good, its a bit funny at times, but it gets stupid…and the animation, I really cant get over that xD
I hated when in Dragon Ball Z the art changed in the animation, one time was great and the other was horrible, is like they were trying to piss us off xD
One Piece, here in Portugal, was a little left off passing on TV at 3am…so I went and saw the DVDs because the story looked interesting at first, but after the “Fish men”…what can I say…horrible xD
Oh how embarrassing ,Juan, thank you for correcting me.
yar, what of the Deadpool comics that were recently released. Deadpool issue 13 and 14, where he got an undescribable large amount of booty and decided he wanted to be a pirate, yar.
@The ODD Fox
fuck, I have to read Deadpool
*giggle* Noah… this is one of the funniest things you’ve ever done. And having the Monkey Island music just made it complete. Easy up on the Pirates Of The Caribbean music though. Monkey Island is the way to go.
Will Scarlett be appear as Governor Marley? ;)
yeah i think we’re going to have to agree to disagree but hey to each his own
I’m Spoony Threepwood; Mighty Pirate!
One Piece has surprising consistency and I enjoy it because the battles are rendered in a serious light. But to really enjoy it, you must understand that it’s for the kids. And yeah, not always very pirate-y. It’s Japan’s TMNT.
Oh, my bad. “I enjoy it because the battles are NOT rendered in a serious light” is what I meant.
@Caliban Don Flamingo
Too bad it’s only got 2 shades of colour!
Well that all depends on how close yer eyeballs are to the page, yanno. One Piece has had it’s fair share of toning. Although at first, Oda never did it.
Let’s try to argue both sides of this coin. Yes, One Piece is corny, and the overarcing plot is to find the ultimate treasure of Mr.PlotMan, which somehow started the “age of piracy”. And that’s why it’s hard to really defend it except for using qualifiers like “awesome!” and saying how fast it’s sold copies (which isn’t actually defending it!). But lemme tell you, this is precisely the kinda dosage I need in my comic life. My cup overfloweth with comics that make ballbusting efforts to redefine my personal philosophies. Those comics are like salty chips. One Piece is like… the cola I wash it all down with. The fights are fun, the locations are fun, the character quirks are fun, the story arcs are fairly naked and by the numbers but still fun. So yeah. Take that with a grain of salt.
the shit is tat one piece became epic after the 300 something cap(ennies lobby and the true history plot thing) until thtat is just awesome…
and naruto it was good until shippuden..tehn in turn into sgit-..and bleach..its…just boring…
I liked Black Lagoon.
I was thinking ‘that bit from Watchman’ the whole time.
Bit sad that the punchline was so obvious; pirates seem like the perfect comic characters, why aren’t there more?
Geeze I can’t beleive he missed the “Pirates vs. Ninjas” comic
Monkey Island music!! W00t!
What, I’m the only one who remembers El Cazador by Crossgen Comics? Granted, it only had, like, six issues and a single “special origin issue of the bad guy” but that’s because the company went bankrupt, not because the comic wasn’t good.
I don’t know if this has been mentioned before, and the only reason I’m remembering it now is because John DiMaggio (the voice of Bender from Futurama) played the guy, but in Vampire: the Masquerade – Bloodlines, there’s a vampire that was former Pirate, named Smilin’ Jack.
I watched all the pirate reviews , some people complain but I enjoyed it. I though someone would mention “One Piece”. I rather enjoy that anime/manga. Its up there with naruto and bleach.
Luffy is probably one of my most favorite anime characters. He has almost no manners , can make goku look like a mensa but at the same time hes very brave and courageous and manages to get on most peoples good side even while behaving like a crazed monkey most of the time.
kubano: “I hated when in Dragon Ball Z the art changed in the animation, one time was great and the other was horrible, is like they were trying to piss us off xD”
fun fact #253:
The artist you drew the comic WAS trying to piss of (or at least provoke) his fans who were complaining that his artstyle became too “angular” by drawing EVEN MORE “angular”.
@Spoony: You make a good pirate! Loved those videos. Keep up the good work!
There is actually a comic out there called “Pirates vs Ninjas”. I haven’t actually been able to get a hold of it but I have read the preview on the official site and it did look rather good. Sadly, I lost the link but it should still be worth hunting it down if ye be a true fan of nautical ventures, yarrr.
Polly and the Pirates by Ted Naifeh is a great Pirate comic and of course in Europe, especially France&Belgium there is a whole lot of good Pirate comics:
-”Golden Century” by Andriveau
-”Canoe Bay” by Oger
-and of course the perfect: funny and sad “Cloak and Dagger” by Ayroles
(titles are rough translations, don’t think that there are english versions)
For all yer’ Pirate-comic needs: http://www.onemanga.com/One_Piece/1/01/
Mhm,”Pirates of the dark water” was any good???
I won’t tell captain linkar.see you later hehe
I was REALLY not amused by this first part, seriously.
Okay, the last three sucked too but I do agree on One Piece, the animations cheaper than an episode of the old Speed Racer anime and the artists are lazy as there are typically moments when a character will use anothers face or somones headfeet will be the size of basballs or their neck will be a foot long, and the only character that can do these things logically is Luffy since he’s Goku but with Reed Richards powers. Funi has a license to this property too so expect them to milk it like FMA and DBZ and expect that AMV that took so much effort to be taken down too.

LOL! The best short ever!
What’s that theme that’s playing at the end? I’ve heard it almost everywhere, but I could never identify it
Monkey Island MUSIIIC!
Berserk has pirates in it. And ninjas. And demons. And zombies. And warlords. And an evil God. The list goes on and on. The main character pretty much fights everything imaginable that is awesome and kills it.
You are a silly silly person.
It does count, in my opinion.
Thank god you didn’t mention One Piece, which in my opinion is just as much about pirates as Naruto is about ninjas. Thank god, and thank YOU.
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.
Hold on there, skippy.
As long as I’m not seeing One Piece yaoi on the frontpage of DeviantArt, don’t even speak Naruto in the same breath as One Piece. DO NOT.
Although ive never read One Piece, I’ve heard its the number one selling manga in japan right now, so that has to count for something. I know people who read it religiously and I have seen the show, and its alright, nothing really special.
Totally hilarious work.
I’d say Redbeard but
1) It’s a French comic (proper title is Barbe-Rouge, which means Redbeard)
2) It was never released in America; I downloaded issues from a defunct French comic site.
I don’t understand French too well but, from what I’ve seen from the art, it seems pretty suspensful.
That’s what’s missing in the American comic market: variety. There need to be more pirate comics.
No – the music playing while the screen’s on the “The end” isn’t from Monkey island. Which one is it?
Ah – never mind. I figured it out. It’s from the Pirates of the Caribbean OST
WOOOOOO!!!! THE EPIC RETURN OF SMILING JACK D’ACRY HAS COME!!!! A lot of you young’ns probably don’t know a thing about ol’ Jack, but me memories go waaaaaaaaay back before even this site be built! and I remember that spoony bard’s old video about his role playing Jack D’Acry back all the way back when he be making videos for youtube and youtube alone! WELCOME BACK JACK! WE’VE MISSED YA!!!!
One Piece is one of those few stories where I admit that it’s fully okay to skip way ahead in the story. It’s like 500 chapters right now. It starts getting really epic at the Water 7/Ennies Lobby arc. I would recommend checking that out. It begins at chapter 322.
Isaac the Pirate. Does Corto Maltese count?
I’m going to have to make the obligatory One Piece recommendation here.
What about European comics, like Barbe Rouge, or… um… the bits with the pirates in Asterix which poke fun of Barbe Rouge.
should have cheted and said prites of the black fraighter
As long as it isn’t the 4Kids version and you can get used to the art style (Very different than most Manga) it’s the most popular series in Japan right now!
honestly, the Black Freighter thing was the only part of The Watchmen I liked. I was more concerned with the conclusion of that story than with the main one
that was the FIRST and ONLY thing i could think of
Ahh Monkey Island theme song. :)
One Piece. Not the 4Kids version or hell not even the English version. Go to watch-onepeice.com, it even translates every word they say for you. It has every episode up until the most recent ones. I highly recommend it.
Spoony's English accent isn't too bad. And kudos for using the Monkey Island music!!

THE WATCHMEN! I thought of that one but never expected Spoony to come back and say it! LOL XD
I didn’t know they still sold rum in jug form. Myself, I spent most of my sailing career in Europe and India, so it’s either port, or Batavia Arrac. But if rum’s all that’s left, then rum it shall right. *Wobble*
