Titan Comics launches Vikings next week (Wednesday 27th April), based on the sensational MGM show which launched in 2013, and was recently renewed by the History channel for a fifth season of 20 episodes.

An Irish-Canadian co-production, the hit Vikings TV show was developed and produced by Octagon Films and Take 5 Productions and is inspired by the sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, one of the best-known legendary Norse heroes and notorious as the scourge of England and France.

Created by Emmy Award-winning Michael Hirst, the show centres on Ragnar (played by Travis Fimmel), a former farmer claiming to be a direct descendant of Norse god Odin, who rises to fame by successful raids into England, and eventually becomes king of Denmark, with the support of his family and fellow warriors: his brother Rollo (Clive Standen), his son Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig), and his wives — the shield maiden Lagertha (Kathryn Winnick) and the princess Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland).

The new Vikings comic is penned by Doctor Who scribe Cavan Scott, with art by Staz Johnson (X-Men, Spider-Man, Batman) and is set during season three of the TV show. In the first issue, Ragnar, Lagertha and their legendary kin sail once more for England and run straight into a shield wall of politics, intrigue, betrayal – and, of course, axe-wielding, blood-spraying, sword-swinging combat!

• Vikings, written by Cavan Scott, drawn by Staz Johnson, launches on 27th April and will be on sale in all good comic shops, including Forbidden Planet

Vikings artist Staz Johnson will be appearing at The Birmingham Comics Festival’s convention this Saturday, 23rd April 2016. For more information visit: www.thecomicfestival.com
