Defiant! The Legend of Brithnoth

 

On August 10, 991AD, a fleet of 93 Viking longships containing 3,000 men sailed up the
River Pant in Essex to the fortified town of Maldon. Led by the king of Denmark
himself – Sweyn Forkbeard – the Norsemen aimed to ransack the town, kill as many of its
inhabitants as they could and, most importantly, raid the Royal Mint stationed there.

Brithnoth, an old soldier who was also the Earl of Essex and one of the most powerful men
in England, assembled a small army and prepared to stand defiant against the coming
onslaught. His deeds that day would be immortalised in a famous poem – The Battle of
Maldon – and continue to cause furious debate more than a thousand years later…

Defiant: The Legend of Brithnoth is a hard-hitting, 90 page full colour historical adventure from writer Andy Winter (Hero Killers), artist Daniel Bell (Psircus) and colourist Aljosa Tomic (Veil).
