It is New Year's Day at King Arthur's court, and a mysterious knight in green arrives at the holiday feast with a peculiar demand. He challenges anyone present to strike a blow against him with his fearsome great axe -- but on the condition that, in one year's time, he may deliver the same blow in return.

Sir Gawain, a knight of the Round Table, accepts the Green Knight's challenge. His honor tested, his loyalty questioned, Gawain leaves Camelot in search of a place called the Green Chapel to keep his end of the Green Knight's bargain.

Based on the 14th century Middle English poem and one of the great tales of the Arthurian Legend, Gawain and the Green Knight is a comic adaptation written and illustrated by Emily Cheeseman. The print edition was funded via Kickstarter in Spring of 2017. The comic will remain free to read online, but if you'd like to support my work by purchasing a PDF or the hardcover book, follow the links below. Thanks for reading!
