Impulsive young Prince Siegfried craves glory and recognition from his aloof parents, the king and queen of Denmark. Starting a war with a neighbouring country and seeking out the most feared dragon in the realm seems like a good place to start.
An epic tale full of action, adventure, mythological beasts, magical swords, powerful rings, and a treacherous companion.
Adapted from the ancient Norse mythological Völsunga Saga, Siegfried: Dragon Slayer is the first in a two-part series by Canadians Mark Allard-Will and Jasmine Redford.
About the creators:
Mark Allard-Will is best known for writing Canadiana comedy comic, Saskatch-A-Man, and adventure graphic novel, Årkade (Renegade Arts Entertainment). Living in the the cold but welcoming tundra of Saskatoon, and born and raised in the picturesque, rural depths of Suffolk, England, Mark loves nothing more than reading a good book, soaking in world mythology and participating in the international film festival circuit. Mark is also an award winning screenwriter.
Jasmine Redford: “Illustrator, copy editor, teacher’s assistant, full-time single parent, and graduate student working on some sort of crazy thesis about Canadian comic books. I snagged my B.F.A. with a major in Visual Arts from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and, years later, followed up with a B.A. Honours from the University of Saskatchewan where I am currently a graduate student. Clearly, I have fallen down the rabbit hole of Humanities, and there is no waking up yet. I might need someone to shake me by the shoulders.”
