Sigmund vol. 1
Born from the blood of gods, Sigmund is a young boy destined for great deeds. But he is lost — he has forgotten who he is, and this is a story of rediscovery, of a struggle to return home.
A reimagination of the ancient Völsunga saga, this graphic novel aims to resound with our own longing for a new dawn, through the dark perils and tragic beauty of a fallen age.
An exciting epos... Nya Tider [New Times] has interviewed a young man with a love for art, blood and folk. (Translated from Swedish)— Robin Carell, Nya Tider
But still, this grim prophecy, drawn by Jonasson, contains the seeds of optimism. Signy never gives up hope, even when her twin brother prefers to be beaten than to give a blow. If that little girl, symbolising our conscience, can keep hope, why can’t we? Of course, what the tale implies is that hard times will occur if we do not make a stand now. The longer we wait and the more we endure the present order, the harder and the less pleasant will be the reckoning. There is no way one can escape his fate.— Rémi Tremblay, Affirmative Right
