Tyndall of Klarn has been send by the dwarves he was living with to find the Heart of Evil in the Realm of Shadow. A land that has a ring shaped island floating in the sky and casts a permanent shadow. Inside the light ring he finds the skeleton of a behemoth and inside an egg. The egg hatches and out comes Velanna a beautiful elf woman. Tyndall is overjoyed since he thought he was the only one of his kind. They start out of the place and have to fight the swamp serpents.
They are unaware that an old wizard named Grithstane is watching. He creates from candle wax creature to go and capture the young elf duo. Grithstane needs Tyndall to go to the floating island and bring back the blood of a dragon so he can regain his youth. You see he has a beautiful elf girl captive he wants to be young for. With Velanna’s life is danger he has no choice but the be transported to the island. There he finds some tribe about the sacrifice a young elf girl to the dragon. He tries to save the girl but she is a swamp serpent that can change shape. The dragon comes and battles the swamp serpent and kills it. Then Tyndall kills the dragon and takes its blood. Luckily as be comes back he finds out that Grithstane was eaten by the captive elf girl who was really a swamp serpent in disguise. Good for him since Grithstane planned to kill him when he got back. The two young elves continue to search for a place to live in Weirdworld.
So this was I think the first Weirdworld comic that was done. I really loved the concept and am disappointed that nothing really was done with it. After the excellent Warriors of the Shadowrealm nothing except for a few appearances ever came from it. You know they are always reviving stuff from the past and this concept looks to have great possibility. You never know.
