The Last Dragon is a graphic novel from Dark Horse. It is a tale of an island village near to the birthplace hundreds and hundreds of years after a dragon has been seen. The village healer is an herbalist with three daughters. Rosemary, Sage and Tansy each has a different talent or asset, Tansy is a healer like her father and when she discovers'Dragons Bane' things begin to get interesting.

The Healer disappears, but we know that the dragon has used him for a snack. Not until a village fisherman dives to recover his snagged bait does anyone sight the monster. Then the village sends three young men, the Copper's son, the Black Smith's son and the Fisherman's son to find a Dragon slayer (who turns out to be Lancot, a brawny young man in his middle twenties. Time is running out for the village as the eating cycle of the dragon nears the next feeding time.

Returning from the search from a distant land Lancot and the three young men find that town Sexton has been killed by the dragon as the noise of the bell tower angered it. Tansy & Lancot come up with a strange plan to attack the dragon using a fake dragon kite to lure him close.
