Kevin Scott: November 2010 Archives

Galveston's major thoroughfares are receiving facelifts.  Fresh-so-smooth-the-ride-is-almost-creamy-asphalt is being laid out on Broadway and Seawall.

And most of it happens while we enjoy our Island slumber.  It's actually kind of weird when you wake in the morning and hit the well traveled streets and notice a difference that transformed without you noticing.  Almost as if magical workers infiltrated the night and wah-lah, fresh asphalt.  Or maybe it was oompa-loompas.

I know I've been enjoying the new ride?  Have you?
 

What do the likes of Archie, Batman, and the Galveston famous pirate Jean Lafitte have in common?

Comics.

Yep.  The pirate Jean Lafitte (an Islander By Choice in his own right) has his very own comic book chronicling his time spent on the Island and all the shenanigans that must have taken place between the swashbuckler and his pal Jim Bowie (that's right the knife-wielding knucklehead of Texas lore).  The series, entitled simply Galveston, is brought to you by BOOM! Studios, and it surely adds flavor to their extensive line of titles.  And just so you know, it doesn't claim to be historically based, so although the characters are based on the real counterparts, the stories are fictionalized.  The comic series debuted in 2008 and ran as a mini-series.

This Islander By Choice hasn't got his hands on copies yet but plans to do so soon.
