From veteran comic writer/artist Michael Fraley comes this story of the famous and legendary character known as King Arthur. This fully illustrated comic series is faithfully based on the original adventure of Arthur as it was written by Geoffrey of Monmouth in the 12th century. Geoffrey’s work is considered one of the most important books of the medieval period and served as the foundation framework from which all Arthurian tales have since been based. This was the work created and written before later authors and Hollywood added their own embellishments.

In Geoffrey’s written work, there was no Camelot, no round table, no holy grail, and no Knights of Chivalry.

But there is Arthur and this is his tale.

The character of Arthur is considered to be based on a real person that Geoffrey discovered in his research. The mentor and magician, Merlin, was a creation of Geoffrey that was added to serve as a narration device for unveiling Arthur's tale.

This graphic novel collects the entire comic series run (#1-5)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
