After meeting the good guys, it's only fair to introduce the competition. I give you two of "the bad guys!"
"This ain't just any ship. This is the Unforgiven.
And I'm Captain Bleak, leader of this cursed crew." ~Captain Bleak
Captain Bleak is a cutthroat pirate captain. If his sword doesn't kill you, his breath certainly will. He's vile, ruthless, and stuck for all eternity leading his mangy crew as they sail on the Sandsea all around the Corridor. His ship, the Unforgiven, is a Spanish galleon that sails over desert dunes rather than ocean waves. And though it looks like a barren wasteland, we get clues that perhaps there's more to the Corridor than meets the eye.
When Prudence meets Captain Bleak, she's set to impress him, but she's sorely disappointed when he's none too pleased with her usual smarty-pants remarks. The two quickly become foes and the rest will go down in history as being one of the grossest, loudest, funniest duels ever to the grace the page.
"We all know there's no such thing as humans." ~Mayor of Wonderville
He's controlling. He's angry. And he's knee-high to a grasshopper. He's Mayor, the Mayor of Wonderville.
As excited as Prudence is to finally reach her destination, the Mayor is quite the opposite. As a matter of fact he's piping-hot mad about it. After a mix-up over who Prudence really is and where she came from, the mayor and the rest of Wonderville make an instant judgement over Prudence's fate. Banishment. What happens next, you'll have to read to find out.
Check out the cover reveal from Friday's post, and if you haven't already, meet Prudence, the Fabrikator, February, and RePeter, too! Don't forget to come back tomorrow to meet the worst of the "bad guys": The Match King!
