Inspired by Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung, Archaia is set to release, Siegfried by Alex Alice. The company released a trailer for the graphic novel that was originally developed as a proof-of-concept for a Siegfried animated feature.
Based on the medieval Germanic mythology of the Nibelungenlied, SIEGFRIED tells the story of a child discovered in the woods by a dwarf-goblin who raises the boy in protective secrecy. As he grows older, however, the boy discovers that he is more than just a lost orphan—he has a destiny planned by Odin, the father of the Norse gods, to fight the dragon Fafnir, guardian of the forbidden Rheingold. This beloved tale of high fantasy and epic heroic discovery is known to have inspired countless well-known classics, including J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
There are some impressive visuals in this extended piece, and it will be interested to not only read the book, but see the animated movie that is now moving toward production with the completion of the trilogy of graphic novels.
