Captain Pirate is one of the most troubled navigators of the Seven Seas and beset by a series of misfortune. Although he hasn’t always been successful in his endeavours, he does have a dream: to beat his great rivals Black Bellamy and Cutlass Liz to win the Pirate of the Year award.
The winner of the coveted laureate prize will be the one who succeeds in stealing the most. With expensive rivals, destroying enemy ships and taking huge sums, the captain needs to intimidate a urucubaca who harms him to fulfill his almost perfect desire for recognition.
In order to accomplish the daunting task of the plot in 1837, the captain and his crew go from the exotic Isle of Blood to the streets of Victorian London. But they do not succeed in fighting various enemies and seek to plunder the ships.
The failed looting attempts reflect the daily life of the group. Courage is not one of these sailors’ strengths. They are glorified by their peers, facing a sad reality. The failed pirate squad Ham Die is the culmination of their routine.
With a flashy beard, the commander meets two historical figures: Queen Victoria and the famous scholar Charles Darwin. The luck of the clumsy captain and his pirates begins to change when they decide to invade the science expedition ship coordinated by the scientist.
The then young British biologist notes that the captain’s parrot, the ship’s mascot, is actually a dodo, an extinct bird. Darwin recognizes the rare animal, to everyone’s surprise. Upon realizing that his pet is a rare animal, the rambunctious crew leader notes that he can take advantage of the discovery.
He thinks Grandma has a lot of potential to bring glory, gold, awards and even Queen Victoria’s temperamental friendship. The king is always angry at ocean robbers who plunder the riches of the crown. The leader does not realize that he may fall into a dangerous trap involving a very unique gastronomical delicacy.
Charles Darwin lives with a monkey friend who interacts through stickers. Next to Queen Victoria, the world presents hilarious sights. The story makes use of the hook in entertaining discourses on evolution and ridicule of British monarchs.
