Dave Gibbons comic
Mysteriously marooned in an unnamed ocean, Ishmael is rescued by pirates and sold into slavery. His past is a blank. Equipped only with courage, a talent for action heroics and the inspiration of a half-remembered love, he must flirt with the sinister tentacles of Hydracorp to win his freedom. The Territory is a land of wonder and fear; hidden in its dark heart, a haunting truth that Ishmael is driven to discover. But there are no maps to The Territory. Those who would explore it must draw their own.

Twenty-five years ago, the Love Generation tried to change the world with music. They failed.

Jamie Delano cuts loose on a vicious pirate tale, delivering a bloody, terrifying vision of a world on the high-seas! But these are not the family friendly kind, these are the roughneck, stealing, heartless bastards of the 17th century Caribbean. A rebellious young women named La Sirena has built a haven for pirates called Puerto de los Suenos (Port of Dreams). It is a good life for those that want to live outside of the crushing boot heel of the Church of England. But the church is a powerful enemy. It expends a lot of its pillaged wealth to bring about the downfall of the pirate scum who are preying upon merchant vessels. Thus, the legend of La Sirena's life will begin, one drip of blood at a time, while the British garrison waits for the pirate to slip into their ambush, tension building as seeming supernatural forces pick off the forces of law one by one, and imagination runs terror through the survivor's veins. With art by Max Fiumara (BlackGas), this is a dark story of misery not be missed and is available with a regular cover fully-painted by Felipe Massafera and a wraparound by Max Fiumara.

Each of the stories focus on a different character in a different location. While it isn't explicitly revealed early on in the series, throughout the progression of the series it becomes clear that all four protagonists are related to one another, although none of them know about the lives the others currently lead and have not seen one another in years, if at all. Alex (#1-3) is the father of Jack (#4-6) and Ethan (#7-9) and Adam (#10-12) are Jack's twin sons. The locations the stories take place in are New York City, Miami, Detroit/Midwest, California/Nevada. As the latter two stories deal with the protagonist's traveling, they aren't confined to a single city.
