Neil Gaiman And Colleen Doran Reunite For ‘Chivalry’ Graphic Novel
by James Ferguson
Neil Gaiman and Colleen Doran are teaming up once more for a new graphic novel adaptation. The duo have worked together to bring Gaiman’s stories like Troll Bridge and Snow, Glass, Apples to life in comic book form. This September they’re doing it again with Chivalry from Dark Horse Comics.
An elderly British widow buys what turns out to be the Holy Grail from a second-hand shop. This chance purchase sets her off on an epic adventure when she begins receiving visits from an ancient knight who lures her with ancient relics in hope for winning the cup.
“I’ve wanted to do an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘Chivalry’ ever since he sent a draft of the story to me at about 1 AM via fax machine decades ago. It is one of Neil’s loveliest, most charming stories, and I cried with happiness when I learned I would get to do the adaptation. I wear my art on my sleeve throughout, bringing Golden Age illustration styles and Illuminated Manuscript studies to the work. It’s a Holy Grail project for me. I sincerely hope it brings joy to people.”—Colleen Doran
“Colleen Doran set the world of comics abuzz (and then cleaned up come awards season) for her adaptation of Snow Glass Apples. Now she’s created a whole new style to tell the story of Mrs. Whitaker and the Holy Grail, and I’m thrilled with every page she sends me. I can’t wait until the world sees what she’s done.”—Neil Gaiman
Chivalry will retail for $19.99. It’s set for release on September 8th, 2021 and is currently available for pre-order at your local comic shop, bookstore, and Amazon.
