A Celtic tale mixed with Japanese manga comic form influenced a University of Wisconsin-Stout senior to create a full-length comic.
“Caliburn” created by Erin Jackson, who is majoring in entertainment design-comics, tells the story of Fionn, who sets out to visit three fairies with a sword handle to build Caliburn, a mystical and magical sword.
“I drew on Celtic folklore mostly for the story,” said Jackson, of Chippewa Falls, who graduates in May.
The comic is 135 pages and reads left to right, the style of Japanese manga.
It is one of more than 100 projects that will be featured in the University of Wisconsin-Stout Senior Show.
If you would like to take part in the virtual show, it premieres from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 18 and will remain open for several months. It features work from students in entertainment design, interior design, game design and development, industrial design, graphic design and interactive media and studio art.
