|The final Mini-Saga|
One must understand that no life lived is meaningless. However, Badin's life was exceptional. He lived long into his 70's (possibly 80's). He left his wife with property and wealth. He was a patriot for the Kingdom of Sweden. He was polyglot. He was also skilled the application of science. The privileges he had were never wasted. His diary proves that he was not a clown nor a brutish, sexual deviant.
The Mirror Mini-Saga is the world's first introduction of Badin as a heroic historical fiction character in a graphic novel. In fact, he was that in real history. The forthcoming graphic novel will explore aspects the historical man and demonstrate the importance of respecting unassuming people in the onward march of human enlightenment and progress.
As an artist, completing this final Mini-Saga brings great joy. When I wrote the first script, along with the previous three Mini-Sagas, I had no idea they would turn out this way. In fact, the rough thumbnail sketches and layout and for this one changed many times. Settling a large scene for the first page seemed perfect. I am also happy because now the world can see Badin in a new way: An intelligent and ambitious young adult son of the Queen of Sweden.
I really hope you like and are inspired by Badin as I have been. I especially want non-white Swedes to have great pride for this special human being.
