Acclaimed artist Pete Fowler, famed for his Super Furry Animals album artwork and Monsterism toys, has created two free comics that bring Welsh legends to life.

Gwenllian tells the real-life tale of the warrior princess who led a revolt in the twelfth century. The battle that’s featured in the comic took place near Kidwelly Castle, and the present-day castle is the place to go if you want to pick up a free printed copy.

Branwen is a retelling of an ancient Mabinogi myth. When Branwen is punished for the actions of one of her siblings, her brother Brân —  a giant king — goes to war to avenge her. This traditional tale is linked to Harlech Castle, and copies are available from this spectacular Cadw site.

In addition to the high-quality printed copies of the comics that are available at these sites, PDF versions can be found below.
