“The Portland Express follows the path of a former US Marine and corrupt cop during the middle of the Great Depression as he joins a group of pirates finding himself thrust in the middle of a fight against the Imperial Japanese Navy.” If that's not an intriguing description, I don't know what is. If that's not enough, I'll fill you in on the first few pages: A drunk ex-cop at a bar is dropped through a trapdoor and confined barefoot to a wooden cell surrounded by broken glass, and manages to find only a handful of rusty nails to help fight his way to freedom. Only his captor turns out to be a lovely lady pirate and he's not sure what to do, until he mouths off and she knocks him out cold. Kinda makes you wish slave piracy really was a problem in the 1930s, right? (It… it wasn't, was it?)
