The Mariner's Revenge Song

Ive been on a bit of a Decemberists kick (again) lately. I tend to go on these 'kicks' several times a week...Im becoming more and more certain that they are, indeed, my favorite band.

Moving along, I was listening to "The Mariner's Revenge Song" (one of my favorites) today and then stumbled across something that I just had to share. The video is just plain good, but Ive seen it before so its nothing new to me. The comic, however, was an unexpected yet welcomed surprise.

So sit back, hit play, and follow along children.

I love this comic, it illustrates the narrative of the song so effectively.

Please note that on frame one the lyrics are off. Near the boy it says: "but I remember me, I was a child of three, and you, a lad of eighteen" This is repeating the previous lyric. It should say "But I remember you, and I shall relate to you how our histories interweave"

Great work though!!
