The retellin is about conquest of England by William the Conqueror.The graphic novel is based on the 18th century Bayeux Tapestry made of linen cloth measuring 68.38 meters and 55 cm in height.

Since it is free copy the publisher had sent a low resolution unfinished panel work for review.

The dialogue itself is ok, but the story can sometimes be a bit harde to follow and confusing, especially when all of the characters look so similar.Overall, this is a nice little overview of the Norman Conquest, with alright illustrations and dialogue.I received a copy of this work from netgalley

This memoir is based on the the Bayeux Tapestry; an ancient artifact ( an embroidered cloth nearly 70 meters long) which depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England, concerning William, Duke of Normandy, and Gerald, Earl of Wessex, later King of England, and culminating in the Battle of Hastings.The tapestry consists of some fifty scenes and the ook does a ba job in recreating and composing a story from these images in a modern format.

The nove deserves credit for choosing to narrate an unique historical event.

However, as an Anglophile, I do know enough of British history to know of the Norman conquest of Britain, the attle of Hastings, in 1066.

Like all historical documents, the tapestry is open to interpretation, especially since it has no text to quantify the images In his introduction, the poe does admit he has taken some liberties while producing his work, just as all good storytellers have done throughout the ears.
