Craig Yoe bellows, “Ahoy ya swabs! I love our deep-as-the-shining-sea relationships with other publisher crews, but I am beyond stoked to hoist sails, too, with my fellow scurvy dogs at Clover Press! Me hearties at Clover hold seriously brilliant vision and immense talents! Together we will plunder cool comics and share treasure-filled book booty, no quarter given, ARRR!”
Pirates: A Treasure Of Comics To Plunder, Arrr! will be the first title in a line of books from Yoe Books that Clover Press will be publishing.

“It’s always a pleasure to work with Craig and his team,” says Clover Press President, Robbie Robbins. “We’ve spent a long time working together, and I’m excited to continue and expand our relationship through Clover Press. And what better way to start things off than by walking the plank together!”
You can pre-order an exclusive Howard Pyle cover variant of this book from Cloverpress.us.
This very special variant cover has a tremendous story behind it!
Reed Crandall made an homage to The Father of American Illustration, Howard Pyle, when he drew a “Piracy” comic book cover for EC. We now make an homage to EC in our variant cover design and we use Pyle’s famous Pirate painting ”Who Shall Be Captain?” that inspired Crandall to do it! Also note the painting on the left side of the cover is a Pyle painting that some historians cite as a reference for a later Frazetta painting!
Pyle! Crandall! Frazetta! EC Homage ! You’ll feel like a pirate rich with booty, matey, when you add this sparkling variant cover treasure to your booty! Avast now, ARRR!
