Author: David Hazan – Artist: Andrea Mutti – Letterer: Justin Birch

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Mad Cave Studios is back with another Free Comic Book Day silver title–this time featuring our bestselling series, Nottingham! Fans new and old can enjoy this special issue of Nottingham, which features a one-shot tale taking place on Christmas, 1192– right between the events of Nottingham Vol. 1, and the upcoming Nottingham Vol. 2. And, in Free Comic Book Day tradition, this issue is completely free!

Synopsis: A very Merry Christmas—All eyes are on Everard Blackthorne, the Sheriff of Nottingham, when his predecessor is murdered in cold blood. It’s business as usual for Ev, with Hood and his Merry Men pulling the strings and a terrible choice to make. With the lives of Alan Dale’s wife and son hanging in the balance, can the Sheriff find the culprit before it’s too late?

“Nottingham has been so thrilling to write because we immediately eschewed all the markers of the original fairy tale. It’s not about a clash of heroes and villains. It’s a story about people with very human concerns and real choices to make, that connects to actual historical events. Moreover, it’s about our Sheriff, a man with all the privilege of his station, but none of the nobility, mired between clashing political forces, with a million-and-one dreadful choices to make before the dust settles.[…]I couldn’t have asked for a better team for this book and I can’t wait to surprise readers and challenge their preconceptions about characters they think they know so well.” – Writer, David Hazan

Already feeling the holiday spirit? We’ve got a sneak peek at what’s to come–check it out below!

“Two of the things I nerd out to are horror and history, and I absolutely love how Nottingham views the latter through the lens of the former. This is a very smart, very gory take on Sherwood’s favorite son, and I’m absolutely here for it.” -Brendan M. Allen,

“Mad Cave Studios' new series Nottingham has taken the "heroic" out from Robin Hood's legendary status as "heroic outlaw" by reimagining the highly skilled archer and swordsman as a twisted serial killer.” -Steven Blackburn, Screenrant
