Arthur: King of Britain
From veteran comic writer/artist Michael Fraley comes
this history of the famous and legendary character known as King Arthur. This fully illustrated comic series and collected graphic novel is faithfully based
on the original adventure of Arthur as it was written by Geoffrey of Monmouth
in the 12th century. Geoffrey’s work is considered one of the most important
books of the medieval period and served as the skeletal framework from which
all Arthurian tales have since been based. This was the work created and
written before later authors and Hollywood added their own embellishments.
In Geoffrey’s written work, there was no Camelot, no round table, no holy grail, and no Knights of Chivalry. But there is Arthur and this is his tale.
The character of Arthur is considered to be based on a real person that Geoffrey discovered in his research. The mentor and magician, Merlin, was a creation of Geoffrey that was added to serve as a narration device for unveiling Arthur's tale.
Graphic novel collects all 5 issues.
