A myth in pictures
The first graphic novel about the mythical King Ludwig II of Bavaria (1845-1886). His life, his castles, scandalous developments: the multifaceted personality of the "fairy tale king" is reflected in his encounters with dazzling figures such as Richard and Cosima Wagner, his aide-de-camp Paul von Thurn und Taxis and many other companions and adversaries. Wolfgang Keller, both the author of this intensive story and the illustrator of the wonderful pictures, has sensitively and intelligently coordinated text, picture and the entire composition. A fascinating, contemporary approach to the tragic king and his life in the field of tension between art, politics and friendship and on the verge of losing touch with reality.
