Siegfried Trailer

Archaia are known for producing great looking OGNs, and Siegfried from creator Alex Alice, certainly fits that bill. Below is the new trailer for the first book, which has had success in France and has now been translated for us English speakers. In fact we devoted an entire episode of the Extra Sequential podcast to the great Jim Henson books that Archaia have created recently, and so far, Siegfried (which will be released in June) seems to be getting the same kind of deserved buzz.


Feature-Quality Animation Heralds Release of Alex Alice’s Epic Graphic Novel ‘Siegfried’

Eisner Award-winning publisher Archaia Entertainment is proud to announce the online premiere of the English-language trailer for their upcoming release of Alex Alice’sSIEGFRIED, the first volume in an epic trilogy of graphic novels inspired by the Richard Wagner operatic cycle, “The Ring of the Nibelung.”

Based on the medieval Germanic mythology of the Nibelungenlied, SIEGFRIED tells the story of a child discovered in the woods by a dwarf-goblin who raises the boy in protective secrecy.  As he grows older, however, the boy discovers that he is more than just a lost orphan—he has a destiny planned by Odin, the father of the Norse gods, to fight the dragon Fafnir, guardian of the forbidden Rheingold. This beloved tale of high fantasy and epic heroic discovery is known to have inspired countless well-known classics, including J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.

To introduce the series to a North American audience, Archaia has released a feature-quality animated trailer created by Pendragon Imageforge and directed by series author and artist Alex Alice. Originally created as a stylistic proof-of-concept for an animated feature film, plans for the full production are set to resume now that Alice has completed the trilogy of graphic novels.

Volume 1 of the SIEGFRIED graphic novel will release in June, with the second and third volumes to follow in 2013.
