Meet the Author

Born in 1974, Alex Alice possessed a passion for comics and animation from an early age. He began to develop graphic novel projects while at l’École Supérieure de Commerce in Paris. In 1993, he met Xavier Dorison, with whom he began to collaborate on Le Troisieme Testament (the Third Testament), a story of adventure and esoteric investigation across Europe in the Middle Ages influenced by the likes of Umberto Eco. The first volume of that series came out in 1997, published by Glénat. In addition to that series, Alice began developing Siegfried, a retelling of Norse myths as a graphic novel trilogy.

Siegfried, Volume 2: The Valykrie 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This graphic novel/comic has some Norse Gods intervention into Siegfried's life as he tries to find his way in the world and on his quest to fight a dragon. The graphics are highly detailed adding to the story line and characters. They also add a crisp edge to much of the feel of the story. While the narrative is a bit formulaic, the humor and emotional relationships between the characters help to distinguish this version from others. Overall, an interesting read.
