Winter's Knight (catalogue entry) is a wordless comic featuring an aged knight who seems to alternate between exploring an abandoned village and nearby sinister wood and fantasing about a beautiful woman from an earlier period in his life.

Interestingly the knight seems neither very brave nor competent with a blade and the reason for his lonely wandering is not revealed.

Without speech (there are words, shaped to reflect how they are being imagined) much of the story is left to the flat, colourful art which so distinctive. The use of colour palettes is imaginative with tones and shifts being subtly communicated.
