Anyway, first was Before Watchmen: Ozymandius * Crimson Corsair; in this prequel to Watchmen, Ozymandius is a self-absorbed sociopath with delusions of grandeur, and even in the original book I found the pirate material uncomfortable; this was even more so. It was a fair spinoff at best.
Next was Usagi Yojimbo Volume 28: The Red Scorpion; I've enjoyed this series for most of its thirty years and this one is as good as they've all been. The quality has kept up the whole time. Forward by George Takei, if that's something that would amuse you.
