Dark Horse Comics has announced that Neil Gaiman and Colleen Dorian are re-teaming turn the short-story Chivalry into a graphic novel.
An elderly British widow buys what turns out to be the Holy Grail from a second-hand shop. This chance purchase sets her off on an epic adventure when she begins receiving visits from an ancient knight who lures her with ancient relics in hope for winning the cup.
“I’ve wanted to do an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘Chivalry’ ever since he sent a draft of the story to me at about 1 AM via fax machine decades ago. It is one of Neil’s loveliest, most charming stories, and I cried with happiness when I learned I would get to do the adaptation. I wear my art on my sleeve throughout, bringing Golden Age illustration styles and Illuminated Manuscript studies to the work. It’s a Holy Grail project for me. I sincerely hope it brings joy to people,” said Colleen Doran in a press release from Dark Horse Comics.
Chivalry arrives on September 8, 2021 and will have a cover price of $19.99.
