This spring, Titan Comics will begin publishing a new comic book series based on History Channel's critically acclaimed television series, Vikings. It is penned by best-selling Doctor Who writer Cavan Scott and illustrated by Staz Johnson (Wolverine, Spider-Man).
The Vikings comic book series will feature politics, intrigue, betrayal and sword-swinging combat. It takes place within the third season and will follow Ragnar Lothbrok as he leads his Northmen on a new saga of glory and plunder.
"I have been a complete Viking geek ever since I visited the Yorvik Viking Centre in York as a kid," Cavan Scott shared. "After years of reading the sagas of the marauding Northmen I couldn’t wait for the Vikings series. I’ve loved every minute of the first three seasons and am absolutely thrilled to be bringing Ragnar, Lagertha, Rollo, Floki and the rest to the world of comics. I can promise you the same mix of melees, mysticism, blood and treachery as King Ragnar faces his toughest challenges yet. Who will desert him first, his gods or his men?"
Four variant covers (two of them are photo covers) will be available for the brand new Vikings comic series. Check out all four in our gallery at the bottom of the page.
Vikings is the critically acclaimed series from creator and sole writer Michael Hirst (Academy Award® winning film Elizabeth and the Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominated series “The Tudors”) and is a family saga that tells the remarkable tales of the lives and epic adventures of the raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages through the eyes of the Viking society. The gripping family saga of Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), Rollo (Clive Standen), Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) continues as alliances and loyal friendships are questioned, faith is catechized and relationships are strained when the highly anticipated fourth season premieres on February 18 at 10pm ET/PT on HISTORY.
