Thumbs up for Heathen, Volume 1 by Natasha Alterici. Graphic novel.
Walking through Emerald City Comic Con, I spotted some art that made me stop on a dime and walk backward. The author/artist handed me the first volume saying something like, “it’s about lesbian Vikings who go on a quest to kill Odin.” I said, “Sold.” I read it that night and went back to Alterici’s booth the next day to get an art commission. Honestly: does the synopsis sound promising to you? Then go get it right now, because it’s so freaking adorable. (And Alterici can even draw horses. No one can draw horses.) If volume 2 was available, I’d fork over any amount of cash for it.
