Honors 313 - Pirates in Pop Culture

Pirates in Popular Culture

Pirates permeate every aspect of Popular Culture. You'll find pirates in comics and manga, film and television, popular literature, music, video games, theatre, advertising, sports and more.

When looking for information about pirates, remember that there can be sea pirates (usually just called pirates), space pirates (in outer space), and air/sky pirates (within a planet's atmosphere, often in flying Steampunk-style vehicles such as hot-air balloons, and dirigible airships).
