FROM THE SHADOWS OF THE FIRST MILLENNIUM COME THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO WOULD DEFINE THE NEXT.
In A.D. 871, the Norsemen arrived on Iceland’s shores. They sought land, freedom and a new way of life. Over the course of centuries, these humble settlers built farms, clans and towns until they shaped a new nation and its path through history.
A daring man named Dag becomes the first man ever to turn his Viking boat west and sail to unknown shores in “The Sea Road.” Twenty years after being exiled, Sven of Orkney comes face to face with his own mythology as a group of mercenaries comes to hunt him down in “Sven the Immortal.” An old Icelandic fisherman discovers the body of a young girl embedded in the ice and then finds himself accused of her murder in “The Girl in the Ice.” And in the epic “The Icelandic Trilogy,” a small family with the name Hauksson builds a powerful crime family only to clash with the rising Church.
Writer Brian Wood (DMZ, Rebels, The Massive), with a lineup of acclaimed artists including Fiona Staples (NORTH 40, Saga) and BECKY CLOONAN (GOTHAM ACADEMY), brings his modern, stylish sensibility a thousand years into the past. Collecting issues #20, #29, #35-36 and #42-50, NORTHLANDERS BOOK 2: THE ICELANDIC SAGA is the second of three volumes chronicling the entire NORTHLANDERS saga!
