My friend Leia Weathington, award-winning author of Bold Riley, tweeted an idea for an adventure story about “a Swedish Viking lady and an Islamic bean-counter lady tearing ass across the continents in the 12th Century”. Well I happened to know that Vikings frequently hired themselves out to the Byzantines in Constantinople, which would have put them in direct contact with the Islamic world, and yes Viking women were known to fight, and there is at least one historical account of women fighting with the Varangians (Vikings, Saxons, Danes and Rus in the employ of Byzantium). The Viking woman is wearing Varangian costume and the Muslim woman is wearing what may be totally inaccurate period costume, but decipherable reference of 12th Century Muslim women is really hard to find.

Here’s the original Tumblr post that gave us the idea there may be an audience for this story. It’s currently sitting at over 6,300 notes and reblogs.
When I drew this, I had no firm idea of who the characters would be, or any details of the story. It was literally based on a tweet. We now have the time period set in the 10th century CE. We know the characters names, Silksif the Viking and Rahil the Arab. And we also know enough not to use the word Islamic when we mean Muslim (sorry) and what a period Arab woman would wear.  

Anyone who picked up my business card and wants to follow the progress of this project, now titled Silk and Gold, please direct your attention to http://silksifandrahil.tumblr.com
I see a lot of people are interested in this idea and I’m happy to say that Leia and I are indeed working on it. Above is a more recent take on the characters. You can find all the latest information on the comic along with art, research and inspiration at silksifandrahil.tumblr.com



This is wonderful!

Characters that share the same personality type as you.

If you don’t know your personality type, take this test.

Rules: Find out what characters share the same personality type as you here and list the characters that you find relevant below. Then tag five friends and let them know you…
