The Faerie Queene (8 of 14)

Publication Date: November 15, 2010

Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century

Sigh. I really can't get rid of Arthur, can I? Just when I think I'm finally done with him, he's back. Dude just won't stay dead.

I drew him without the crown on purpose, since he's not actually the king yet in "Faerie Queene." He's just bumming around on a quest looking for Gloriana, which actually makes no sense to me, considering how easy finding her apparently was for everyone else when this book started. Like, the douchebag that became the Redcrosse Knight can just stumble into her party, but King flippin' Arthur is lost? Maybe she's just avoiding him, like when you see someone you don't like at the mall so you duck into a store really quick until they're gone.
