Based on The Treasure of the Black Swan, the graphic novel by Guillermo Corral and Paco Roca, La Fortuna tells a story within a story, as swashbuckling archival clerk Lucia Vallarta and the distintly un-pirate-like diplomat Alex Ventura set out to prove that the treasure shouldn't be Wild's to keep.

With the aid of the world's foremost maritime law attorney, Jonas Pierce, a man who knows more about reasure than Robert Louis Stevenson, they take on the might of Wild's not-exactly-lawless troupe of buccaneers, and piece together the story of the great ship La Fortuna, sunk in battle more than 200 years ago.
