    Just to clarify: it's "300" meets "Bravehart" plus "Hamlet" with a bloodstained heart. Read Full Review

    As it is, Northlanders is one solid ending away from becoming an outstanding graphic novel. Considering the manner in which this issue ends, I have no clue what to expect out of the final installment of Sven the Returned, but I've a feeling Wood will return to the introspective type yarn that he popped in between all the violence during the middle of the story arc. These types of stories are Wood's bread and butter, so hopefully he can provide a satisfactory conclusion to what's already been a very entertaining series. Read Full Review

    Okay, Northlanders has been an awesome book so far. I dont mean to make it out to be this pile of soulless pages that no one should read. Read it! Its great, really. But dont be surprised if you find yourself wandering between loving it and being nearly perplexed by it. This issue came home to open arms this Wednesday, and I loved every bit of ituntil the end. Its the return to narrow form thats knocking some bullets off of this baby. Northlanders, this hurts me more than it is going to hurt you, but ugh, 3.5 bullets for one of my favorite books.
