Sinbad, the legendary hero of the high seas, has faced many challenges in his lifetime, but none will test him more than the when he is made responsible for a wilful ward, Habib. Together they set off on a voyage, only to find themselves in the middle of a harsh storm on a wild sea. Luck guides them to an island full of riches, but they are still not safe. With the jewels on this island come giant snakes, gigantic eggs, and monstrous birds! And if this were not enough, when they escape to yet another island they find cannibals waiting for them. Fate intervenes yet again, only to lead them to into more danger with hideous rodents and the possibility of being buried alive!
While they move from adventure to adventure, Sinbad has to groom his young charge to become a responsible man, someone both his father and guardian can be proud of. But will Sinbad's wit and courage be enough? Will they live long enough to for the boy to grow into a worthy young man?
Dan Johnson was born in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1970. His first graphic novel, Herc and Thor, was published by Antarctic Press in 2006. In early 2007, Johnson joined Campfire's list of writers and has penned several adaptations of classic novels for the company, including Robinson Crusoe, Oliver Twist, The Jungle Book and Sinbad.
"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."
