Bought the ComicPro variant just to get an advance look and was pleasantly surprised. It starts a bit slow, but picks up fast. The way it ended got me hooked. Can't wait to learn more about our main character!

World Reader lived up to the hype. The story was great and the art made for an amazingly immersive experience. A beautiful debut! I was compelled to buy the #1 variant and already ordered issues #2 and #3. Can't wait!

Still my favorite new title of 2017. Heathen & Seven To Eternity are keeping me well fed :)

Heathen #3

By: Natasha Alterici, Natasha Alterici
Released: Apr 19, 2017

Things haven't quite gone as Aydis planned. She's been kidnapped. By the goddess Freya. And she's trapped in the impenetrable stronghold of the Valkyries. Escape seems impossible. It's hard enough just resisting Freya's spell. Roles now reversed, Brynhild plans a rescue, with help from Saga and a very old friend.

I'm picky about my comics, only pulling Saga, Monstress, Seven to Eternity, and Lazarus... and now Heathen. With all due respect to God Country fans, this is my vote for best new book of 2017.

Heathen #2

By: Natasha Alterici, Natasha Alterici
Released: Mar 22, 2017

The viking warrior Aydis crosses hellfire to reach the Valkyrie Brynhild, only to discover that was the easy part. Actually setting Brynhild free from Odin's curse is a whole other story. Meanwhile her talking horse Saga confronts the mystical wolves who will end the world.

I'm pretty picky reader (I have only gotten hooked on Saga, Scott Snyder's Batman, Monstress, Seven to Eternity, and Lazarus over the past few years), so praise doesn't come easily... but this one earned it. Great characters, great art, and a great start to this title. Will it hook me in for the long haul? We'll see, but I'm hooked for now. Throw in a low print run and things could get crazy pr more
