All things Green Man & the traditional Jack-in-the-Green

The Green Knight

Green Knight
Eco Comics has announced that it is bringing the legendary Green Knight to its range of comic books and graphic novels. The character will make his comic book debut in the series featuring the publisher’s other legendary green character, the leafy-headed Green Man. Writer Chris Bunting explains: “The Green Knight is pure comic book fare. He is a powerful giant green knight, and seems barking mad. He makes the ideal foil for the Green Man. “Does any association remain with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table? You will have to keep reading to find out. “Expect a visually stunning Green Knight, yet one that is respectful to how he was originally intended. A character that clearly inspired J. R. R. Tolkien deserves nothing less.”
The character will join other famous faces at the award-winning ‘green’ publisher, including, among others: Dracula, Robin Hood, Green Man, Dick Turpin, Englishman, and Mr. T. Eco Comics sees the Green Knight as a perfect fit to this roster, especially as many scholars consider Sir Gawain and the Green Knight as the world’s first eco-poem. He will go on to play a prominent role in the publisher’s plans.
The Green Man comic book, featuring the Green Knight, is available now from www.mohawkmedia.co.uk/ecocomics

  2. I feel very excited that the memory of the Green Man is slowly coming back to the collective psyche. A google search on Green Man doesn’t seem to offer very much that scratches below the surface into this mysterious entity.
