Heathen From Vault Comics Sells Out After YALSA Nomination

by James Ferguson

The Nordic fantasy comic Heathen from Vault Comics has sold out of its initial print run for the first trade paperback after it was nominated as a YALSA Great Graphic Novel for Teens. If you missed it, don’t worry as the publisher has started a reprint of the trade paperback which will hit store shelves on March 28th, 2018.

Heathen, from creator Natasha Alterici, follows Aydis, a viking / warrior / outcast / self-proclaimed heathen. She’s friends with the talking horse Saga, the rescuer of the immoral Valkyrie Brynhild, and battler of demons and fantastic monsters. Aydis is a woman born into a time of warfare, suffering, and subjugation of women. Her mission is to end the oppressive reign of the god-king Odin.

Heathen: Volume 1 collects the first four sold-out issues of the series.
