Shima da!

(Shima da! - It's an island!)
 
Weird to explain, but I'm going through a weird time. Whenever something occurs now or seems to lie ahead, I consider I'm encountering an island while sailing on the sea of life. And as every Strawhat Pirate knows, an island means an adventure. Also...

Tales of the Black Freighter
is named after the comic book that appeared in the original Watchmen graphic novel as a story-within-a-story, this animated companion piece to director Zack Snyder's feature film version of Watchmen finds an inner-city youth reading a story entitled "Marooned" from the eponymous comic book. In "Marooned," a young mariner cast adrift at sea attempts to return to his hometown in order to warn the locals of the approaching Black Freighter. In order to accomplish this formidable task, the desperate seaman must shed his inhibitions, using the bodies of his dead shipmates as a raft, and killing anyone unfortunate enough to get in his way. Arriving back in town under the assumption that the crew of the Black Freighter has already taken over, the mariner mistakenly attacks his own wife in the darkness of the couple's home. Realizing his tragic mistake, he ventures back to the shore to see the Black Freighter approaching, and swims out toward the ship to confront the crew.
