Vault Comics Viking Saga ‘Heathen’ Returns This Summer

by Oliver MacNamee

Vault Comics’ series, Heathen, returns after a rather lengthy break with reprints of issues #5 and #6 as well as an all-new issue, kicking off the second season of this Viking-era saga from creator Natasha Alterici and incoming artist Ashley Woods (Lady Castle, Tomb Raider) from #9 onwards.

Heathen went on to be an international best-seller and was selected as an American Library Association YALSA 2018 Great Graphic Novel For Teens and was one of Vault Comics early critical successes.

If you didn’t catch it first time round, here’s the lowdown on the series so far:

Written and drawn by Natasha Alterici, Heathen tells the story of a young Viking warrior named Aydis. An outcast and self-proclaimed “heathen,” Aydis is a woman born into a time of warfare, suffering and subjugation of women. She takes on a quest to end the oppressive reign of the god-king Odin, and break the shackles imposed on the women around her.

And, we’ve even got some pages for you to preview ahead of the release date for Heathen #7 this coming June. Enjoy.
