Description


Everard Blackthorne, the Sheriff of Nottingham, is strongarmed into working with Robin Hood after Richard the Lionheart is kidnapped by the Holy Roman Emperor Henry VI.

When Richard the Lionheart is kidnapped and ransomed by Holy Roman Emperor Henry VI, Everard Blackthorne, the Sheriff of Nottingham, is strongarmed into delivering the ransom and bringing the King home, on penalty of death. The treacherous Prince John and his ally, King Phillip of France, will stop at nothing to ensure Richard remains in captivity, so the Sheriff finds the unlikeliest of allies in none other than Robin Hood and the Merry Men. With Robin and the Sheriff away, Marian hatches her own devious plan to take back Nottingham.

One of Comicon.com's BEST COMICS ARTISTS OF 2021
One of Comicon.com's BEST WRITERS OF 2021

Nottingham challenges idol worship and the long held practice of canonizing atrocious human beings in stories and song. It’s well written, beautifully drawn, and engages the reader from the very first sequence. Well worth the price of admission.”
— Brendan M. Allen

"This team of artists continues to deliver highly strong, violent imagery and horrifically impactful panels, that drives this story and really makes the whole series stand out from any other re-imagined Robin Hood project in history. It’s dark and twisted but never forced. It never feels like the imagery is forcibly gruesome. It only ever feels spot-on for the tone of the story and helps bring the whole world to life."
— Media Mallrat

"This book is an unbelievable take on the Robin Hood classic tale."
— First Comic News

"Hazan is proving to be a master at dramatic tension time and time again."
