Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

£5.00 / Sold Out


The epic medieval tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight adapted into a zine sized comic book by Mark Penman and John Reppion.

"If ye will listen to this lay but a little while,
I will tell it forthright as I heard it told in town,
As it is set down in story that cannot be changed,
Long written in the land in true words."

When King Arthur's nephew, Gawain, accepts the yuletide challenge of the mysterious Green Knight, he finds himself entered into a pact that will surely cost him his life.

Told and retold, re-translated, and re-imagined through the centuries, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight was originally written in Middle English, circa 1350 CE, by an unnamed author.

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight has become part of the rich story-soil from which the forest of modern Western literature has grown. The journey undertaken by Sir Gawain is a familiar one, even to those who have not yet heard its telling, nor trod its course.
