Short but sweet

From the creator of ‘The Shadow Under the Leaf’, Adam Kobetich’s new title presents a short but sweet tale depicting an unlikely meeting of two strangers who both belong to the sea.  With no words, the comic opens with a tranquil scene of the water, with each wave a different shade of blue. On a rock, a silhouette sings, reminiscent of figures like Tim Burton’s Jack Skellington and Skottie Young’s Scarecrow.

As the sun sets with a pink and orange glow, our focus shifts to the Lady Pirate who sails through a storm, gravitated towards the tune played by the piper.  When first glances are exchanged, both seem to be met with surprise but as the dark clouds clear, a sense of calm and hope can truly be felt, connecting the couple.

After witnessing the beauty of the Lady Pirate, the Wayfaring Stranger remains on the rock, performing music for the moon. Upon her return, they kiss, their passionate flame personified by the torch she carries and a passing of the sword.

Calm and relaxing 

Overall, ‘The Wayfarin’ Stranger Meets the Lady Pirate’ is open for reader interpretation. I felt myself using the comic to tell my own story. Just like a ‘Nuff Said’ special, the absence of dialogue is compensated by the stunning artwork and vibrant painted colours. The narrative is designed to be slow-paced which makes for a calm and relaxing read.
