    "Jack Sparrow: The Coming Storm" from Disney Press

    Teenage stowaway Jack Sparrow and his band of ragtag hoodlums are on a mission to find the legendary Sword of CortTs which will grant them unimaginable power, but first they have to survive the power of the sea, vicious pirates, and ancient curses.

    Love him, he looks just like all the cute little boys that hang out at the Coffee Bean at Sunset Plaza!

    While I like the artwork of this it's the idea of it I'm not too sure I'm ready for. Does this mean endless prequel work? A new animated tv show based on countless mythological adventures of a young Captain Jack? I love the movies, love the toys they are selling and everything about the ride and the films, but I worry about overkill....

    Alias, you are way more in the know of such things, what else will be coming our way of this sorts?

    This is obviously designed to tap the young Disney Adventures Comic Zone magazine crowd, along with their Jack Sparrow comic. If there isn't a Disney Channel series coming soon I'd be surprised....

    Um, this is kind of the point of the series, to make money... The movies themselves are worth a nice bit of cash, but the franchise is worth billions.

    Yeah but there IS such a thing as too much.

    Three movies, DVDs, video games, movie-related merchandise out the wazoo (shirts, toys, etc), and now... this?

    Maybe you should let George Lucas know he's way outta line.....

    The books, etc. are aimed at the younger targets, (kids 6-11, tweens)
    theoretically now too young to see the films (Hey, get a babysitter and let the rest of us enjoy the movie!) but will be the future market for future projects like the third film, etc.

    Exactly, the market broadens for each new film. All those too young to see the first, saw the DVD then saw the 2nd... And I'm sure it will be similar for the 3rd even though there is less than a year between films. I don't think these books will be overkill, I doubt anyone over 11 will even know what they even are.

    Avast, ye pirate fans! A bounty of tales afloat

    Updated 7/9/2006 10:17 PM ET



    The Stratford Archive
    He's the man: Angus Konstam's Blackbeard focuses on the infamous pirate.

    By Deirdre Donahue, USA TODAY

    Swashbuckling pirate tales have been around as long as, well, pirates. In 1724, Londoners devoured Captain Charles Johnson's A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the Most Notorious Pyrates. And children have thrilled for generations to Robert Louis Stevenson's 1883 classic Treasure Island.

    With Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) back in action in the new movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, it's pirate time again in bookstores. Here are some worthy new titles, for children and adults:
    For children

    • Disney Press is releasing 18 different Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest titles in the USA. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest: Junior Novelization is already No. 33 on USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list. A bit of advice: Though parents find these books depressingly commercial, kids adore reading movie tie-ins, even if they aren't ready for the film. Let 'em. Books should be fun, especially for beginners.

    I don't think the series is that bad. It's like the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles except with Pirates, thus making it much cooler.

    Lies. Indy>Jack>Star Wars.

    Nothing is cooler than Indy... Nothing.

    But Pirates is pretty much the 2000's Indiana Jones isn't it?

    I don't know how you can say that when Star Wars has transcended to a religion level following.
