Archaia Entertainment/Comic Books is no stranger to epic entertainment. Many of their titles are stories taken from the Jim Henson library, so when they rolled out this stellar animated trailer for the book SIEGFRIED written Alex Alice it came as no surprise. The animation was created by Pendragon Imageforge and directed by series author and artist Alex Alice. It’s intention is not as a full length feature, but as a “promo only” for the Siegfried series. I say whatever….soon as fanboys get a whiff of this amazing penmanship it won’t be long til we see a feature or t.v. series. But you don’t have to take my word for it (Levar Burton).
Story: A three-part story inspired by Wagner’s classic opera The Ring of the Nibelung. Siegfried, half-god and half-mortal, is a young boy being raised by Mime, one of the last of the dwarf-goblin Nibelungs, in a dark forest with only wolves for friends and family. While his foster parent only wants to live in peace and solitude, Siegfried yearns to discover who his real parents are and live amongst his own kind, not knowing that Odin, father of the Norse gods, has a destiny planned for him: to fight the dragon Fafnir, guardian of the Rheingold.
