“God save the King.”
After an explosive five-issue run that included multiple reprints, Mad Cave Studios is proud to announce the return of our bestselling series Nottingham! Everard Blackthorn’s quest for justice continues in Nottingham: A King’s Ransom, the second installment of the celebrated medieval noir.
With the sudden disappearance of Richard the Lionheart, our hero Everard Blackthorn must team up with the unlikeliest of allies to deliver the ransom and bring the King home. The throne hangs in the balance, and the fate of Nottingham lies in their hands! Will they succeed in their mission? Or will the course of Nottingham’s history be changed forever?
Synopsis: When Richard the Lionheart is kidnapped and ransomed by Holy Roman Emperor Henry VI, Everard Blackthorne, the Sheriff of Nottingham, is strong-armed into delivering the ransom and bringing the King home, on penalty of death. The treacherous Prince John and his ally, King Phillip of France, will stop at nothing to ensure Richard remains in captivity, so the Sheriff finds the unlikeliest of allies in none other than Robin Hood and the Merry Men. With Robin and the Sheriff away, Marian hatches her own devious plan to take back Nottingham.
