Please note I have a limited amount of copies at the moment. Currently books are in stock and will ship next week; I will update this text if that changes. You will still be able to place an order even if I run out of this first batch. Printing takes about 2 weeks, and I'll do my best to keep the listing updated with estimated ship dates.
The re-release of the book is a second printing rather than true second "edition," as it contains no changes to the interior text or artwork. The main difference between this version and the original is the cover. Green Knight 2.0 is still a hardcover book, but is slightly thinner and features a printed case binding with a matte finish. It was difficult to say goodbye to the cloth binding and green foil of the original, but this method of printing is better suited to small batches of books.
The plan is to keep the book in print for the foreseeable future. There may be occasional delays in shipping if I am waiting on a restock, but I will keep the product listing updated accordingly.
Thank you so much for your continued interest in this book!
It is New Year’s Day at King Arthur’s court, and a mysterious knight in green arrives at the holiday feast with a peculiar demand. He challenges anyone present to strike a blow against him with his fearsome great axe - but on the condition that, in one year’s time, he may deliver the same blow in return.
Sir Gawain, a knight of the Round Table, accepts the Green Knight’s challenge. Based on the 14th century Middle English poem and one of the great tales of the Arthurian Legend, Gawain’s story is a tale of courage no matter the consequence. His honor tested, his loyalty questioned, Gawain leaves Camelot in search of a place called the Green Chapel to keep his end of the Green Knight’s bargain.
Gawain and the Green Knight is a comic adaptation of the Arthurian folktale of the same name. It is available to read online at emilycheeseman.com/greenknight, and the original print edition was funded via Kickstarter in April 2017.
