The Preposterous Voyages of IronHide Tom

Ironhide Tom marooned againWriter/Artist: Joel Priddy

This was another one of those Free Comic Book Day comics given out every year. It also happens to be one of my favorite comics of all time. That added with it being free, makes this the Ultimo Supreme 4 Dragon Fists of Destined Destruction Comic! (I just read Wolverine: Manifest Destiny and watched Kung-Fu Panda, so yeah...)

The Preposterous Voyages of IronHide Tom comic is as if The Adventures of Baron Munchausen was rewritten into comic book form. IronHide Tom is the child of a sailor and a typhoon, who spends his life going on adventures. He has been bait for fishing vessels, lands on a giant egg that gives birth to a massive bird, visits mer-people under the sea, becomes a slave to a witch, is swallowed by a serpent, offends a storm god, becomes caught between amorous Kraken and so on; oh, and this is only half the of the story!

Now, for all you comic obsessed fans out there, IronHide Tom is indeed a one of a kind find, and I wish you luck on your voyage to find this gem. Hopefully it'll be a preposterous voyage.
