1066

Thanks to Net galley for giving me an opportunity to read and review the graphic novel 1066. The story is about conquest of England by William the Conqueror.

The graphic novel is based on the 11th century Bayeux Tapestry made of linen cloth measuring 68.38 meters and 55 cm in height. The story is told in 58 scenes and it is considered to be worlds first comic strip.

It is an adventure story of William, the novel also exhibits his shrewdness and leadership qualities. In between they have provided the images from the Bayeux tapestry which makes the book more enjoyable.

The copy I have received have some unfinished panels and pencil marks abound. Some panels I have given below. Since it is free copy the publisher had sent a low resolution unfinished panel work for review. I am sure the final product will be fantastic, as the unfinished panels looks good.
