From the artist that brought us Duke of Anjou, it’s an even bigger medieval epic with war, disguises, murder, more disguises, betrayal, and lots of armor! Art’s great, and the story has a lot of fun twists and turns. It’s a shame Ruggiero and Grifone end up stealing the show, shafting Sally and even Elias.
Some learning fun:
The comic is based on the illustrations of Gustave Doré did for Orlando Furioso. You might recognize his illustrations from Milton’s Paradise Lost.
The dudes in the pointy white hoods and robes aren’t kkk, those are Penitent robes worn by priests in Spain and Italy. You usually see them in the Easter procession. The kkk did appropriate the design though, which is kinda funny since they originally wouldn’t let Catholics join.
It’s the start to a crazy epic set in medieval times and featuring various Archie Sonic characters. War, murder, betrayal, and lots of swapped identities. Try and keep track of everyone and everything! This is day one of Tales of the Knights of King Maximillian!
We continue with more betrayals, costume changes, and murder being given out like candy on Halloween. This is day two of Tales of the Knights of King Maximillian!
The time for fun jousting and wearing disguises for fun is over! Pure evil has risen and threatens to take over Mobius! It’s going to take everyone, allies and even enemies, to stop the Lord of Chaos! This is the end! This is day three of Tales of the Knights of King Maximillian!
