Nottingham Vol. 2: A King’s Ransom

We rated this book:


Robin of Locksley and Sheriff Blackthorne of Nottingham come to some understanding. Together, they plan to deliver a ransom to the Holy Roman Emperor in exchange for Richard the Lionheart. Prince John and the French King Philip will stop at nothing to thwart Robin and Blackthorn, ensuring Richard remains captive. With Hood and the Sheriff away, Lady Marian enacts her schema to take over Nottingham with the help of Little John and the Merry Men.

Nottingham: A King’s Ransom is the second graphic novel featuring the characters from the Robin Hood stories. Written by David Hazen, this political thriller is full of scheming, backstabbing, and double-crosses. Loosely based on the legends from Sherwood Forest, this is not your Disney Robin Hood story. The artwork of Shane Connery Volk and coloring by Luca Romano, actions portrayed in this graphic novel are darker and much more bloody. This book is part of an ongoing series. The story continues from volume 1 and makes more sense when read in order. Fans of reimagined mythology and medieval comic book art will enjoy Nottingham Volume 2: A King’s Ransom.
