Walter Simonson’s Norse epic set in a post-Ragnarök world returns with a new mini-series this week with issue #1 of Ragnarok: The Breaking of Helheim from IDW. Join a very different Thor to the one you’re familiar with as he heads to Helheim, the Land of the Dead with Laura Martin on colours and John Workman on lettering.
Enjoy the preview and one of comic book’s living greats.
In the end, the gods gathered together and met their foes on the Battle Plain of Vigrid. There, so the stories tell, the gods and their great enemies slaughtered each other, the stars fell from the sky, Midgard itself sank into the all-encompassing ocean, and the Nine worlds were destroyed. In this issue, Thor hears a voice out of the past and learns that not all the old stories are true, and that the path before him now leads to Helheim, the land of the Dead.
