2015 is here! With the release of not only Majora’s Mask 3D, but also Zelda Wii U, this year is sure to be an exciting time for Zelda fans. 2014 was sort of the year for Want Midna Back, but as far as the series proper is concerned, 2015 looks to be much more momentous.
That said, let’s kick things off and talk about something related to neither Midna nor the Zelda series at large.
Joking aside, this is definitely worthy of your attention. WMB administrator and banner artist Lauren “Spookypatrol” Felipe has, for nearly a year, been working on something that’s been shaping up to be pretty special — a graphic novel titled The Immortal’s Shard.
Set in an — as of right now — unnamed continent, the story focuses on the popular myth that Death himself left a precious artifact in the mortal realm. Legend claims that whoever obtains this artifact will be able to use it as a bargaining chip, ultimately leading to an immunity from death.
Often referred to as the Shard of Immortality, this artifact and the mythology surrounding it has caused many to dedicate their lives to tracking it down. Of course, none have succeeded, but that hasn’t stopped the most adventurous of folks from trying.
That’s where Eris, Alvar, Zander and Moros come in, for their adventures, including their search for the shard, are the center of this story.
Although the graphic novel is still a work in progress, eight of the prologue’s nine pages are up. An immaculate retelling of the creation of the universe by way of a “stained glass storybook,” this is one hell of an opening.
Already, the tidbits of lore that have been put in place have made this a world that I can’t wait to get lost in. Be sure to head over to the graphic novel’s official site and read the rest of the prologue! Definitely comment, too, for I know Lauren would appreciate the feedback.
