El Cid tells the story of the later life of one of history’s greatest warriors, El Cid. As Spain was undergoing chronic warfare from the wave of Islam sweeping into the Christian nation, small kingdoms were carved out of the land. The Cid was instrumental in the quest to unify Spain under one ruler. Banished by his own King, El Cid continued to bring victories in the name of his Lord and would fight with and against both Christian and Muslim.

In this tale, the events leading up to the Cid’s attempts at unification and his success at Valencia are covered as well as the enduring legend of his last ride into combat.

Written by Gary Reed, known for his forays into historical works such as Zulunation, Jack the Ripper, and his tales of the immortal, Saint Germaine, the saga is rendered in full paintings by noted historical illustrator, Wayne Reid. This full color graphic novel is a masterful telling of an epic hero.
