Summary

Inspired byxa0Dulle Grietxa0(aka “Mad Meg), Pieter Bruegel the Elder's 16th-century painting of a “strong, intense woman striding determinedly across a violent landscape,xa0Dull Margaretxa0is the first graphic novel by Academy Award winning-actor Jim Broadbent (Harry Potter,xa0Game of Thrones) and artist Dix (perhaps best known for hisxa0Roll Up! Roll Up!xa0comics in thexa0Guardianxa0newspaper). Thexa0Dulle Grietpainting shows a breastplated woman with a sword in one hand in front of the mouth of hell, and Broadbent uses that single, vivid image as a launching point to explore what the rest of Dull Margaret's bleak existence may have been like.
