The Legend of Eider Penmagli
The Legend of Eider Penmagli is thus; a long long time ago, a great evil rose from beneath the mountain. But that evil was vanquished. Nowadays, a thriving village sits in the shadow of the mountain. In it live Rhianwen and Constance, who live ordinary lives. Except for one thing. Magic still lingers, a legacy from all those years ago. A gift they both can harness, using it for the benefit of the whole village. But Constance has bad dreams, and Rhianwen worries about the danger that may be lurking in the future. The morning is fresh and clear. A blessing is said. And today will be the same as any other.
A 24 page comic about magic and mystery and small town life, The Legend of Eider Penmagli debuted at MCM London Comic Con 2015.
