  • And the lady (or damosel) of the lake is killed in Malory, but she's only Marvel-dead: she returns. The use of the term "Marvel-dead" made me laugh aloud. Thanks for that! Nimue is in the graphic novel, CAMELOT 3000, but I'm not very fond of the way they portray her in this. And she has a song in "Camelot," the musical. I haven't seen Camelot in ages! I didn't even realize she was...

  • I have several of those books in my TBR pile! :) James's mention of Archaia reminds me of Mouse Guard, which they put out, and Artemisia, both of which were well reviewed fantasy series that I haven't read. I bet Damien has a good guess about the American market being more violent. -Alana On Wed, Jun 17, 2015 at 11:56 AM, David Emerson emerdavid@^$1 [mythsoc] < mythsoc@^$2 > wrote...

  • Hi Berni, You're not wrong about violence, and I tend to prefer my comics with a lighter amount of violence myself. I wonder a bit if the violence in the format stems from its origins in the superhero genre, which is the genre that's had the longest continuity in the format in the U.S., and in which most problems are solved through combat of some sort. I don't think it's a...
