Thank you enormously for supporting our site, we are immensely grateful.  We hope you enjoy our historical fictional graphic novel and the accompanying history articles.  For those of you who are interested, further historical background and contextual materials can be found on our Pinterest and Google+ pages.  We have produced a Pinterest page to supplement each article.  6 will have been released to go along with the 6 articles available to all readers of the site, with the other 12 to follow.  


You may notice amongst the cast in our Programme Notes below characters who do not appear in part 1 of ‘The Shadows of the King’.  This is because we have already sorted out some ideas for part 2 but have yet to create it.  We expect that to take another couple of years, fingers crossed!

The Shadows of the King: part 1

Escaping from the Leads, a prison high up in the Doge’s Palace in Venice, and fleeing from the Venetian Inquisition, troubled adventurer Giacomo Casanova arrives in Paris on 5th January 1757, the day of Robert Damiens’ failed attempt to assassinate Louis XV.  To rebuild his fortunes, he accepts an invitation from an influential acquaintance to investigate who is behind the systematic destruction of a wealthy French businessman.  Along with an actress, a monk, his godson and the richest woman in France, Casanova finds himself embroiled in the affairs of Louis XV’s spymasters.
