A sweeping historical fantasy. Stunning art from one of British comics' undisputed masters. Following its best-selling reprints of his The Rise and Fall of the Trigan Empire
series, the Treasury of British Comics brings one of master artist Don Lawrence's most popular and enduring comic book strips back into print.
Originally serialised in Lion, Karl the Viking is a sweeping historical fantasy story of an orphaned Saxon boy, adopted and raised by the Viking Eingar after his raid on Britain. Upon coming of age Karl succeeds Eingar and leads his tribe into battle in Britain against wild tribes of Picts, and re-connects with his old Saxon family, gaining an ally in his cousin Godwulf, and making an enemy of the Earl of Eastumbria.
These fast-paced stories were drawn by Don Lawrence when he was already a master of pen and ink and shortly before he revolutionised painted comic strip art with The Trigan Empire
. His Karl the Viking
series was the pinnacle of black and white comic art.
