The television show Vikings is the next property Titan Comics is turning into comic book form. The comic series, set to hit shelves in Spring 2016, will take place within the third season of the show and follow Ragnar Lothbrook as he leads the Northmen further into plunder and glory. Cavan Scott (Doctor Who) will be heading the writing and Staz Johnson (Wolverine, Spider-Man) will illustrate.
“I have been a complete Viking geek ever since I visited the Yorvik Viking Centre in York as a kid. 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?” – Cavan Scott
