Heroic Knitting

I just discovered the graphic novel Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword, which features an orthodox Jewish girl who wants to be a dragon slayer.  The story begins with Mirka arguing with her stepmother who wants her to pay attention to her knitting.  Both of the skills she learns from her stepmother, knitting and arguing, come to her aid when she needs to challenge a troll to win her sword.

Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword is available from amazon.com, and a shorter version is available for free to view on the web.
