Join Wiglaf and Mordred as they try to maintain their friendship through world domination plots, jealous siblings, employees with more secrets than they let on and of course the lies that the two tell each other. With a cast of colorful and unique characters, you’re sure to be entertained.
Or so says the Advertising Campaign if you wanted a nutshell summary. If you want something a bit longer:
The Adventures of Wiglaf and Mordred (aka WaM) follows the story of a lonely hero and an apathetic villain who find out they have more in common than they thought as they explore their relationship with each other and the people around them. They”ll meet up with friends, parents, siblings, rivals and all sorts of other interesting characters as Wiglaf and Mordred try to get along in a world that allows Dragons to stand side-by-side with Super Intelligent AI Computers- But that’s just the tip of the ice berg:
They also have a tendency to run into talking swords, floating orbs, zombies, serial killers, bystanders, genetic engineers, ax crazy psychopaths, obsessive older brothers, total monsters, jealous lovers, crazy siblings, imprisoned CEOs, teen genius, and concert pianists (complete with manager) - just to name a few. (If you don’t believe me, check out the cast page some time. ^_-)
So dive in, read, laugh, smile and get to know their world. Most importantly, however, make sure to watch out for the Security.
Because he’s definitely watching you.
WaM updates Sundays, Wednesdays & Fridays.
The Adventures of Wiglaf and Mordred is a comic I created way back when in 2005 while taking two British Lit classes back to back in the same semester. Covering all the British Literature from before Beowulf to the present makes you attached to the subject matter. Before I knew it, I had created two characters based on my favorites and there you go – slap them together and you have yourself a comic.
Wiglaf was found his inspiration from the character ‘Wiglaf’ from Beowulf. If you don’t recognize the name, go read the second half of Beowulf – the part with the dragon no one ever seems required to read in school – and you’ll find he’s the poor sap who got stuck dealing with all of the feuds that Beowulf started. Poor guy; he got my pity and quickly became my favorite character in the epic.
Mordred’s modeling comes from someone a tad more famous- ’Mordred’ from the Authur Legends that have been adapted more times than I can count. Specifically, though, my Mordred takes his roots from Morte Darthur by Sir Thomas Malory. Why is he my favorite? This Mordred has one of the best death scenes I’ve read. It’s good stuff. Go read it.
Now, you may be asking: Why did I stick them together? Who knows? But I liked it and that’s all there is to it.
Thanks for reading!
