The tale of William Tell has never been rendered this beautifully as in Mitsuhisa Kuji's stunning debut work Wolfsmund, where a fortified barrier-station torments the Swiss Alliance murdering all who stand against it, until William and his son attempt to defy it.

A fascinating reimagining of a European legend, Wolfsmund is a retelling of the William Tell legend with a focus on an actual landmark in the Uri district of Switzerland, the Devil's Bridge at St. Gotthard Pass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfyingly Very Brutal I didn't really know what I'd gotten myself into with Wolfsmund until reaching the end and realizing the body count was pretty merciless. Mitsuhisa's art is perfect for portraying motion alongside highlighting certain emotions. My personal favourite is of Johanna who is shown as absolutely livid in one scene and that's something pretty rare to see: a woman drawn seriously while angry and it's not played for comic relief. Overall, I'm stoked to read on both for the art and the mysterious mistress who runs the inn.
