Blackbeard: The Lost Journal – An absorbing graphic novel about the life of one of the world’s most notorious pirates 

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag: Blackbeard: The Last Journal

by Christie Golden
Insight Editions
2014, 148 pages, 8.1 x 10.4 x 1 inches
$25 Buy a copy on Amazon

If you’re not a gamer, don’t let the title of this book scare you off. Yes, it’s a companion book to the popular Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag game, but as someone who hasn’t played any of the Assassin games, I thoroughly enjoyed this “journal,” which comes off as a very authentic and moving account of the life of Blackbeard (aka Edward Thatch, aka Edward Teach) during the years of 1713 – 1716. Reminding me of Tony Soprano, Blackbeard (at least as portrayed in this book) was a captain who seemed to have two identities: he was both threatening, gruff and ruthless (“Blackbeard”) as well as fair, emotional and loyal to his friends and crew, sometimes to a fault (“Edward Thatch”). The book easily stands on its own as a fascinating graphic novel, with beautiful illustrations and lots of fun removable extras, such as a wanted poster, playing cards, a map, letters and more. I am now going to purchase the Black Flag game as a companion to the book. – Carla Sinclair
