Overview

The tale of William Tell has never been rendered this beautifully as in Mitsuhisa Kuji's stunning debut work Wolfsmund, where a fortified barrier-station torments the Swiss Alliance murdering all who stand against it, until William and his son attempt to defy it.

A fascinating reimagining of a European legend, Wolfsmund is a retelling of the William Tell legend with a focus on an actual landmark in the Uri district of Switzerland, the Devil's Bridge at St. Gotthard Pass. Filled with action, politics and drama it has all the makings of The Game of Thrones, including its share of bloodbaths, but told through a historical fiction perspective.

Meet the Author

Little is known about Mitsuhisa Kuji (born in 1978) however we are certain that is a pen-name for an interesting young female artist with one of the finest pedigrees in Japanese comics.

While Wolfsmund is her debut series, originally published in Japan by esteemed indie comic publisher and video game taste-makers, enterbrain!, she has been in the industry at least since 2004, mainly working on short stories with the ambition to someday have her own feature length seres. But before she began working on her own short stories, she was the assistant illustrator for two of the biggest names in comic art - Kentaro Miura (author of the best-selling series BERSERK) and Kaoru Mori (creator of the Victorian maid drama, EMMA). Since her debut work, "Samurai Dream", she has gone to draw a handful of other shorts, collected in a book called Luminous & Brightness, before launching Wolfsmund to critical acclaim in 2009.
