Baggywrinkles is an educational, autobiographical comic series designed to bring maritime history and culture to life. These stories are based on the time I’ve spent working aboard 18th-century tall ships and they’re currently going to print as a handsome collected volume via KICKSTARTER!
Baggywrinkles: A Lubber’s Guide to Life at Sea will collect all five published issues of the series, plus the never-before-seen-in-print Issue 6 (Scurvy Dogs)! In the meantime, you can read the published comics right here:
Issue 1 – The Beginning
Issue 2 – Sea of Ink
Issue 3 – Parts Unknown
Issue 4 – The Plank
Issue 5 – Pacific Passages
Looking to run away to sea? The experiences depicted in these comics largely occurred on the tall ship Lady Washington during my time aboard as a volunteer deckhand. If you’d like to learn the ropes of tall ship sailing from the ground up (seriously, I had ZERO experience when I started), check out their Two Weeks Before the Mast program!
