    Frank & Michelle:

    You both raise excellent points! This is something that's on my mind a great deal as well, since my goal is to bring maritime culture and modern tall ship sailing to life through comics -- a medium not typically associated with living history or traditional nautical activities. 

    I will say it's been a great treat to interact with members of the non-seagoing public at conventions across the US and Canada and see their eyes light up when they encounter these stories in print and realize that yes, this is still a thing happening in the world and yes, they can go and do it too. It's also gratifying to see mariners delighting in an accurate representation of their experiences in a medium normally confined to fabricated tales of piracy, but I think reaching people who wouldn't otherwise know much about tall ships is the more exciting of the two.

    I grew up on the West Coast, very near the ocean, yet it took me till high school to realize that I could actually crew aboard a square rigger. My hope is that drawing comics about these experiences can reach people younger than I was and expose them to the possibility of that world in an engaging, accessible format. Ideally the comic I produce about the Voyage will contribute to that dialogue, and I do hope you'll all take full advantage of using it to explain the nature of the journey to interested parties.
