The comic book series will take place within the continuity of the third season of the show and will follow Ragnar Lothbrok as he leads his Northmen on a new saga of glory and plunder. This tale of politics, intrigue, betrayal and sword-swinging combat is penned by best-selling Big Finish and Titan Comics Doctor Who writer Cavan Scott and illustrated by Staz Johnson (Wolverine, Spider-Man).
“I have been a complete Viking geek ever since I visited the Yorvik Viking Centre in York as a kid,” says Scott. “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?”
