Orphaned at a young age and raised in a Sui monastery, Prydwen settles into a peaceful life tending the gardens, never knowing who she is or where she came from. When disturbing dreams give way to waking up in patches of ash where flowers used to be, she flees the safety of the church grounds with her friend Auric, looking for answers. Her path takes her deep into the sacred gardens of the Wanderkind God, where she is destined to release his imprisoned Elynd and learn more about her past. But, things rarely go as planned when Gods are involved, and Prydwen finds that she is a crucial part of the plans of both Gods and Monsters.
Prydwen began as a black and white web-comic by Lynn Hogan. The comic can be read at deadbeatgods.com, which continues to be updated regularly.
Prydwen: Gods and Monsters is the first volume of the web-comic, collecting the first 100 pages of story. The panels have all been fully touched up and colored for the print release. The book version includes sixteen pages of guest art and a cover designed and illustrated by Balaa, and is available in two editions: softcover and printed casebound hardcover.
