A black comedy masterpiece by a graphic novel supergroup.
Guy is no master mariner, with a clipped red (or black) beard. He’s just an ordinary member of the crew — able enough, but also a lazy, cowardly liar, a drunkard, and a thief. He urinates on bar counters and vomits in ladies’ restrooms. All of which makes him more like the real gallows fodder that haunted the seven seas in the 18th century than the swashbuckling Hollywood heroes that grace most contemporary pirate narratives.
Portrait of a Drunk is a story told in two allegorical parts: "The Blowout" and "The Hangover." Guy the pirate brings together the key narrative and pictorial elements of the great tales of the sea — bright colors, grand battles, and plenty of gallows humor in this tour de force of black comedy.
