"On Stranger Tides" Next Pirates of the Caribbean Title

Since the announcement at Friday's D23 Expo, speculation has begun about the next installment of the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. The title for the summer 2011 movie will be "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides." The title comes from the Tim Powers novel for which I did the cover of the skeleton pirate.

The artwork will be featured in a large reproduction in the soon-to-be-released Imaginative Realism. At the same store site you can order a signed copy of the collectors edition of the book, which has just become a lot more collectible.

I can't tell whether you're being serious or sarcastic! Disney didn't really name the film after the Powers book, did they?

That is one of may favourite novels; I wonder if they've arranged with Mr. Powers to incorporate his story?

Your cover for this and for The Stress of Her Regard are canonical for those titles as far as I am concerned, James. When I wore out the novels through borrowing and re-reading, I had to hunt down the same editions.
