The sorcerer Raevil owes a blood debt, and Rikard intends to collect. Not even the ancient beasts from the depths of the sea can stand in the draugr's way. But Raevil is a cunning enemy, and he awakens even more powerful forces to oppose Rikard.
As opposed to the first two issues, the story here is a lot slower, as it focuses on what was previously a secondary character, now thrust into a leading role. While the actions of Rikard force the plot forward, the payoff here for anyone that has read the first two issues is in the last two pages, both with the plot twist and the gorgeous artwork by Joelle Jones. It is a bit slower and a bit more sedate than fans of this series will be accustomed to, but by the end this issue stands alongside the others in terms of quality, and this leads into the following issue better than the previous two issues have done.

Brides of Helheim takes a bit more determination than the average supernatural series but the story telling promising to pay off over time. It's a win for fans of Cullen Bunn and strong art on the part of Jolle Jones keeps the pages moving. It's sparkedmy imagination and I'm along for the ride to see where things progress.

Once again the beginning of the book is rather lackluster and Brand and Sigrid are extremely annoying characters that do not add value to the story of Rikard. Raevil's mystery is peeled away and it is a little disappointing he is described as such a great evil when there appeared to be glimpses of genuine good previously. There are a number of panels that appear to be out of place that make following the middle part of the story quite frustrating. One positive is Jones' creature design and action sequences. The new challenge to Rikard is quite fabulous (I can easily imagine this being hung up as a poster)! Read Full Review
