Walker Bean never wanted to be a high-seas pirate waging a pitched battle against the forces of the deep. It just worked out that way.Mild, meek, and a little geeky, Walker is always happiest in his grandfather’s workshop, messing around with his inventions. But when his beloved grandfather is struck by an ancient curse, it falls on Walker to return an accursed pearl skull to the witches who created it—and his path will be strewn with pirates, magical machines, ancient lore, and deadly peril.Author/illustrator Aaron Renier brings everything he has to this swashbuckling adventure story. Drawing from sources as disparate as Tintin, Treasure Island, and Harry Potter, Renier has woven together a breathless tale that will leave readers’ ears ringing from the cannon-shot and their eyes dazzled from the glowing stares of sea-witches.

I'm sure many will love it, but for some reason it just wasn't working for me. I'd still recommend it to pirate-lovers.Library copy.

4.0 The Unsinkable Walker Bean
I'd never heard of this until I got it for Christmas. My wife bought it for me on the good word of Jeff Smith, the author of the Bone series, and he wasn't lying. It's been a hoot so far.

4.0 The Unsinkable Walker Bean
As a rule, I don't read graphic novels mostly just because with everything else I read, I don't have the time. Walker Bean looked like it would be fun to read with Griffin, though. It was :) [full review]
