Legend Eternal is a complete story arc based on the comic book superhero, Saltire, set in an expansive world of Scottish myth and legend with modern superhero dynamics.

The book is set in at the turn of the first millennium and mixes Norse and Caledonian mythology as the Berserker army, led by intimidating warlord, Severe, first manipulate, then attack the Scottish clans, revealing an ulterior and more sinister motive. Severe's army brings dark magic and a damned god to the Scottish shore as the clan guardians must put internal conflicts aside in a battle to the end.

Here are 7 pages of the Legend Eternal. They are not in order, in fact they are totally random - a lot of our fans have asked us not to reveal the plot...but still a wee peak into the awesome artwork and story.

Risks and challenges

The Saltire Legend Eternal graphic novel is print ready with all illustration, colouring, lettering and production complete. All challenges towards completing the project are in the quality printing and timely distribution of the title to its backers. Both of these challenges, we believe, will be achieved by our sound project management and in house logistics.
