The Lady of the Lake is the true hero in this cinematic twist on the tale of King Arthur created by Thomas Wheeler and Frank Miller (300, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City). Whosoever wields the Sword of Power shall be the one true King. But what if the Sword has chosen a Queen? Nimue grew up an outcast. Her connection to dark magic made her something to be feared in her Druid village, and that made her desperate to leave... That is, until her entire village is slaughtered by Red Paladins, and Nimue's fate is forever altered. Charged by her dying mother to reunite an ancient sword with a legendary sorcerer, Nimue is now her people's only hope. She wields a sword meant for the one true king, battling paladins and the armies of a corrupt king. She struggles to unite her people, avenge her family, and discover the truth about her destiny. Featuring 8 full-color and 30 black-and-white pieces of original artwork by Frank Miller.
