"Meet Army Shanks -- crusty old sea dog and legendary brawler of the high Arctic seas! He's got just one mission: to find the mythical island paradise known as Far Arden, which lies hidden (so they say) in the wintry oceans of the far North. But there's more than just water standing between Shanks and his goal: he'll have to contend with circus performers, adorable orphans, heinous villains, bitter ex-lovers, well-meaning undergraduates, and the full might of the Royal Canadian Arctic Navy! Not to mention he's not so sure how to get to Far Arden in the first place"--Publisher's web site.

I am kind of torn on if I like this book or not. It definitely made me chuckle out loud, and I do think it was amusing and clever in places. The thing that bothered me the most was how awful all of the female characters were. The old love interest was a cold-hearted, cheating liar, and the young reporter was a shrill mess, who spent most of her time getting drunk and trying to sleep with the other characters.
On a stylistic note, I am rather enjoying the trend I'm seeing in comics, and which was really played to full advantage in this book, of changing sound effects from the standard 'biffs' and 'pows' to more descriptive terms. I think that was the most amusing part of this book.
