    And, of course, the wider point about the Disir: how myths and legends have historically treated women rather badly. It's interesting that Sigurd, the notional hero, and the Disir, the apparent villains, have switched roles over the course of five issues. The exploration of this idea makes the story deeper than it first appears and now that it's over it'll be interesting to re-read it all with knowledge of the ending intact and see how its points are made.
