Beowulf Cartoon by MJ Weller published by Writers Forum in association
with Visual Associations
The poets of the great banqueting hall entertained host and visitor with tales of long long before.
Grendel's dead at the hands of Beowulf. King Hrothgar hires a stand-up to tell a joke or two at Beowulf's conquest celebration in Denmark. As it happens, Hrothgar's comic doubles as a poet on the festival circuit. A beerwolf poet making loud disjunctives after a few jugs. A worthy entry to Viz comic's profanisaurus amplified by an avant-bardist mic (mike weller).
But MJ Weller's big draw Beowulf Cartoon isn't played for laughs.
Using a series of lays devised from 2,826 lines of Anglo-Saxon scriptoria - stress-fonted, graphically wrought, and blasted with visual alliterations - Weller's individual hoard has been scanned, conjured and breathed-upon for 1,200 years and more.
