Page 2 with Captain Daring's swordplay earning himself the leadership of his new pirate band!

Every so often an enterprising soul decides it’s high time for pirates to make a comeback in popular culture, with results varying from wildly successful (a number of Errol Flynn swashbucklers, the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise) to instantly forgettable (ummm… just about everything else?).
After post-war audiences grew disenchanted with super-heroes, Golden Age comic-book publishers gave the pirate genre a turn at the plate. In 1950, Quality Comics kicked poor Kid Eternity to the curb and rebooted the erstwhile hero’s book into a swashbuckling anthology titled “Buccaneers.”
Buccaneers starred the very Flynn-esque Captain Daring, whose short fling with stardom (the character, along with the title itself, only lasted nine issues.) benefited greatly from the artistic efforts of one of the industry’s finest pencillers: Reed Crandall.
Here’s the rare original art with the origin of Captain Daring from Buccaneers #19 (Quality Comics, January 1950).
