Saga of Manannan, Part 3 and end of the Irish Mythological Cycle

This is the third and final part in the Saga of Manannan which contains two stories. The first, the Tale of Laogaire, tells of a visit of a great warrior to the Realm of the Undying who given the chance refuses to return to Erin. The second tale, the Tale of Tadg and the Three Duns or Castles tells the tale of the voyage of Tadg amongst Manannan's Islands and his encounter with the three great Halls in the Many-Coloured Land.

This is also the last episode in the Irish Mythological Cycle and the tale of Tadg rounds off the tale by returning our vision back to Four Islands in the Otherworld, perhaps the very same islands from which the Tuatha De Danaan came from to settle the land of Erin.

Promo - Genesis Avalon


"Genesis Avalon" is a full-cast, fantasy maxi-series serial drama. Like a lot of kids who grew up in the 1990s, I grew up with shows like X-Men, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman, Justice League, and Spider-man. As a child of the 90's though, I also grew up with a totally different form of the superhero in the form of anime. From the boys of Gundam, to the seven warriors of Suzaku in Fushigi Yuugi, to even (dare I say it) Sailor Moon, I had been able to see two different kinds of heroes. The kinds with capes and gadgets (Or alien powers), and the kind whose mystical powers governed their duties and how they fight.
 
So I decided I would take the mythology I loved the most and apply it to a superhero. Thus came Genesis Avalon.
 
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed writing and directing it. And my cast is made of platinum, you are all amazing.


Kathryn Pryde 
Creator, writer and director, "Genesis Avalon"
