The story behind the story: This comic was written and drawn by me, John Simcoe, while surfing on Wikipedia. There I discovered the one-time existence of the U.S. Lighthouse Service and soon began reading the heroic accounts of the its keepers and its sister organization, the U.S. Life-Saving Service. I put together a quick story, populated my world with Disney-style characters and began drawing. This is my first official comic, so I hope you enjoy it. Feedback is appreciated and welcome.

Sample pages: Here are a few samples of what’s inside. The actual comic pages begin shortly after Capt. Amberjack answers his door to a frantic Billy the Walrus, who’s been out to sea on a whaler, only to be captured by pirates.

  1. Red Lighter shows the life of a light house keeper in a non-boring way. Turning the characters into animals was a wise choice.
