Yvain: The Knight of the Lion is by M.T. Anderson. This is a beautifully worked graphic novel retelling one of the more obscure of the Arthurian legends. Yvain goes off to seek adventure, kills a knight in a battle, marries his wife, and then leaves her to go on more adventures. This is one of the few legends in which strong women are main characters. The illustrations are exquisite. Boys and girls will enjoy this story.
