Britain, 420 AD

The Roman Empire has called all its troops

home .. .

when it ended the occupation of the country,

leaving it in turmoil.

In every province of Britain, / i

the local tribal chief has declared himself

king of that region

and each king wars with

another for more territory.

Now, the Saxon Barbarians have started

invading the shores

trying to conquer Britain for themselves.

A Dark Age in Britain has begun.

The time lost in history.

The time of legends, violence, and bloodshed.

Magic and mythical creatures.

and of a great wizard named.


MERLIN "The War Of The Dragons"

That's right.



A message sir.

Kill the child.

Killing is the safest way.

But not the wisest.

This child

If the offspring of a demon

can be called a child.

I believe your daughter...

that no man, but rather an evil spirit come down...

and second advantage is of the basic goodness

and purity.

Nor, do I confess the nature of her .....

... only the nature of the spirit.

which must have been evil

to fire herself.

One needs look no further at the chaos

in the Heavens of Pyra, My Lord!

To see basic evil ...


I'm tired of your words.

I... I'm tired of yours...

The pupil should not challenge the Master.

I've counselled you

so ...I did to your father,

and his father and his ..

and many other kings of Wales and Britain.

.. over these many years ..

Healing the plague and the famine.

Kept the Roman legions in proper fear ...

... of invading these lands.

Yes... You and your Druid priests...

.. took their pains and sacrifice when you need it.

Did you not ?

I want the child !

More! More !

I have seen a vision of the Oak tree...

associated with this child.

So you say this child's father is the...

... spirit of the underworld?

Evil spirits.

which is why, it is better

and safer to kill the child.

to have no evil spirits here.

Or would it be better not to risk ...

the wrath of dark Gods, by killing it !

20 years later...

Merlin, let me see.


One last lesson .

What would you like to learn ?

I would like to learn how to read minds.

A simple preposition...

To read a person's mind...

you must know heart.

Study them.

you must understand what it's like to be then.

Only then you'll be able to place yourself

in the minds of the eye.

and you will be able to read their minds.

But that is not magic.

Yes, but it also equally as well.

One should not think first of magic...

if you can

accomplish the thing in other means.

Merlin, what would you like to learn ?

I would like to learn how to create light.

The spell you seek is an ancient.

I rarely use it.

In dark places...

it would call attention to me ..

as much as it one's vision.

Let me try again.

That's what I would call

attention to one's ......

Has he ever shown you that book?

The Book of Spells?


Hasn't he shown you ever ?


I doubt you could even read it

And you could?


I have studied ancient scripts.

This 'Book of Secrets', handed down from one the next.

One thousand years of knowledge.

we change

back into the Hiboriaanse Ages.

Everything we need is in that book.

He must have his reasons.

He's afraid.

You and I ,the power we have is within us.

It was his ....from these pages .

I don't think we are so different from him.

May be hiding something from you.

Like what?

Has he ever told you who your father is?

We are orphans.

If he knew who is our father

he would have told us.

You're naive.

There are spells in that book,

that you can read the past.

Show you where you came from.

He is hiding not from you.

Do not you want to know who you really are?

Use your spell.

come along

to me.

It is enchanted!

-...keep watch !


How did you get ?

I do not know.

It .. just ... by itself.

Ask it something.

Show Merlin his father !

His father.

Focus on that.



Vendiger, put it down!

Paira ..Release him!

Release him ..

Release him... Paira


I've failed...

all What I ...telling you

I cann't see now.

Has great power .. in this book.

Neither you nor Merlin are ready.

I disagree.

If you wish to remain under my guardianship,

Master Vendiger

... you will adhere to the time and honour the traditions.

I trained you as I was trained.

and show the magicians before me.

Now, Come on.

Let us fix what is needed.

Merlin needs our help.

So, is about Merlin, isn't it?

I have no favorites.


If it were I ,

call from the ground like a crying baby?

How can you say, I am worried ?

I left him there to attend to you.

You came for the book.

You and Merlin're like sons to me

You're not my father.


There are things to do.

Merlin needs you

There is still time to undo the damage

which you have done

You're making a mistake.

I have failed you too.

I need your help.

Bless the gods and...

I would not finish, if I were you.

Will you help me?

Is this the great Merlin?

Rest, Merlin.

Merlin , Good morning .

I would like you to introduce to the Lady Nimue.


Where am I?

My sanctuary.

Private study.

Deep within the earth, beneath the Oak Tree.

Here one can work undisturbed.

Well, it is the home of Lady Nimue

What happened to me?

Vendiger's spell put you

in contact with your father.

That thing...

That could not be my father.

I'm afraid so.

I am no child of a demon.

Your vision...

was not about an Oak tree?

We need more proof than a mere birth mark.

Turn it over and one can see an Oak tree...

... yet this way, See something entirely different.

Who you are, does not come from your father or mother.

Not even your status or your family.

Who'll be...

comes from you within.

You're the offspring of God.

But how much of these powers lying in you...

... and for what purposes you would use them,

only you can determine

What is she?

- One such ...can be powerful allies

... otherwise the enemies.

There are many Gods...

Still about in this world...

if you choose to see them .

Not what you expected, huh?


to me!

Dragon! Dragon !

Dragon! Dragon ! Dragon !!!



Please, every one...

I'm just a traveler passing through...

I only ask one thing...

That we shall celebrate this night together.

that we can share this water .. for victory!


We should attack before

the spirits weakened

Every day, people leave our ranks.

Hengest, has taken us this far, perhaps you know ?

We should take the kingdom for ourselves.

Instead of protecting these fools...

..from our labour.

I wish to join your army.

What skills could you possibly have ?

100 of your finest men...

can not kill me.

Naive Ling, I'll crush you right now.

May be, sir.

Aren't you curious that why I

would make such a claim ?

What is it you want?

I want what you want.

Are you not Hengest...

..who hated Vortingen, and the Picts

drove in securing the kingdom ?

Same, if I am correct.

which was rewarded by being expelled...

Jon Macy

Jon Macy is a gay American cartoonist. He began his career in 1990 with the series Tropo published September 1990 – April 1992 by Blackbird Comics. Since then, he has contributed to various LGBT comics anthologies and gay pornographic magazines, but he is best known for his graphic novel Teleny and Camille, which won a 2010 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Erotica.Macy's first series Tropo was part of the early 1990s black and white alternative comics boom. It was followed by the erotic horror series Nefarismo published October 1994 – October 1995 by Eros Comix. These stories contained dark and surreal motifs, mixing eroticism with hallucination and death/rebirth, a common theme in Macy's personal works.Throughout the 1990s, Macy contributed to queer comics anthologies, Meatmen and Gay Comics, and gay skin magazines, such as Steam by Scott O'Hara, Bunkhouse, and International Leatherman. His work on Meatmen included a short story entitled "Tail". Gilad Padva argues in his academic paper "Dreamboys, Meatmen and Werewolves: Visualizing Erotic Identities in All-male Comic Strips" (2005) that Macy's "Tail" eroticizes and politicizes Sigmund Freud’s homophobic myth of the Wolf Man.After a hiatus of eight years, during which time he worked on his graphic novel Teleny and Camille, Macy began publishing again with an autobiographical story, "Crazy in Bed", published in Robert Kirby's anthology The Book of Boy Trouble, Vol. 2. He has since collaborated with various established and independent gay cartoonists, including Sina Evil and Justin Hall.In 2010, Macy's Teleny and Camille was published by Northwest Press, a graphic adaptation of the classic anonymous erotic novel Teleny attributed to be a collaboration between Oscar Wilde and other writers he knew. Teleny and Camille then was awarded the 2010 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Erotica. An excerpt was featured in Teleny Revisited, a special issue of The Oscholars.He produced the self-published comic book series Fearful Hunter (2010–2014), started as an act of protest against California's Proposition 8. After the first three issues were published, this title was picked up by Northwest Press who hosted a Kickstarter fundraiser in April 2014 to publish a compiled anthology including the final previously unpublished fourth issue. Fearful Hunter won the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant in 2010.He has contributed to many anthologies including Justin Hall's No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics and Robert Kirby's Qu33r. He was co-editor with Tara Madison Avery, of ALPHABET: the LGBTQAIU creators from Prism Comics. more…
