The Making Of A Modern Fantasy In 'Birthright'
The Making Of A Modern Fantasy In 'Birthright'
It’s Fantasy Week here at ComicsAlliance, but I’ve got a confession to make: I find it hard to get into fantasy stories. I often struggle to connect with their conflicts and invest in their struggles without a grounding in something real and a representation of something I can recognize as true. I hate to say it, but I need more than elves, dwarves and orcs to commit to a fantasy story. Skybound’s Birthright manages to take classic fantasy tropes and tell a very real and very human story across two worlds. In a very modern portrayal of the genre, Joshua Williamson, Andrei Bressan, Adriano Lucas and Pat Brosseau have established a fantasy world with something very real to say about our own.
