PIRATE FUN: THE FIRST TRIAL is a full-colour, 32-page comic book, and the first chapter of the sequel to the popular, SICBA Award-winning all-ages title DUNGEON FUN. This campaign is to raise funds to cover the printing and production costs, so that we can bring our swashbuckling adventure to life and continue to do what we love - which is making comics for people of all-ages to enjoy. Pirate Fun: The First Trial is created by Colin Bell and Neil Slorance, with colours by David B. Cooper.

What is Pirate Fun?

THE LONG-AWAITED SEQUEL TO COMIC BOOK RESOURCES' 94th BEST COMIC OF 2015 IS FINALLY HERE!

The heroine of the all-ages smash Dungeon Fun returns... and now she's a pirate! At least, she's trying to be. She's trying SO HARD, gang. But how will she get her Pirate's Licence unless she can withstand... THE FIRST TRIAL? Join Fun Mudlifter and her spectral companion Games the Knight as they face down pirates, pirate audition judges, mermaids, manmaids, and the might of the KRAKOCTOPUS (which is a kraken made of octopuses)! It's all Fun and Games until someone loses an eye!

Here's the first five pages!
