Things couldn't be worse for our Lusty Lady of The Deep Blue. On this, the last leg of her voyage to the mystical South China Sea, she finds herself chained to the mast of wicked Governor William Truk's flagship. The governor intends to hand her over to Papist spies and the punishment-hungry reformer known only as The Grand Inquisitor. What Truk doesn't know is she intends to spill his blood and skuttle his ship! What the Jade Dragon has planned for them may be far worse. This issue introduces the birth of her worst enemy "The Black Crab" and sets the stage for her ongoing quest.
