Tales of the Black Freighter DVD

Tales of the Black Freighter is a unique comic-within-a-comic that tells the tale of a castaway's mental and physical deterioration and damnation as he tries to intercept a ghost freighter headed for his hometown. The film will get released on DVD May 6, and will include the requisite extras. Why should you care? Because this is the tale that was featured in Watchmen involving pirates and savage survival. The film will most likely serve as a supplemental marketing for the main film's release. Regardless, it may be worth a look. It features the voice of Gerard Butler and is executive produced by Zack Snyder.
