Even as the Vikings invaded, conquered and colonized the North Sea, they did not leave the mainland untouched. They spread outward across Europe in search of land, wealth and glory.
A Norse blacksmith befriends a poor girl fallen in with corrupt Christian missionaries only to be banished. In “The Siege of Paris,” medieval warfare is seen through the eyes of a simple grunt as a massive army grinds to a halt against the walls of that ancient city. And an isolated Viking settlement on the Volga River falls prey to a violent contagion as the brutal Northern winter descends in “The Plague Widow.”
Writer Brian Wood (DMZ, Rebels, The Massive), with a lineup of acclaimed artists including Riccardo Burchielli (DMZ), Leandro Fernandez (The Old Guard), Simon Gane (They're Not Like Us) and others, brings his modern, stylish sensibility a thousand years into the past. Collecting issues #17, #21-28, #30-34 and #37-40, NORTHLANDERS BOOK 3: THE EUROPEAN SAGA is the third of three volumes chronicling the entire NORTHLANDERS saga!
