Beowulf (1984)

beowulf1

Adapted and illustrated by Jerry Bingham

 

On the cusp of the Dark Age of Comics, Bingham released this excellent adaptation of the 8th century Celtic poem.  The lettering/calligraphy, done by Ken Bruzenak, add to the exceptional artistic quality of this over-sized graphic novel.  Beowulf won the 1985 Jack Kirby Award for Best Graphic Album.
