Preview - Helheim #1

Once the threshold of Helheim is crossed, not even gods can escape. That's quite a line of demarcation you want nothing to do with if you're a god. In the comic of the same name though, one character may prove that old bit of lore false.

Written by Cullen Bunn, illustrated by Joelle Jones and colored by Nick Filardi, Helheim #1 takes place during the age of the Vikings, when savage wild men and dark creatures beset a small settlement. A brave war party stands as guardians of the helpless villagers, but they are no match for the horrors rising up around them. One of the warriors, a young hero named Rikard, will pay the ultimate price in battle, but his fight is far from over.

Helheim #1 is a gothic horror story of witchcraft, night creatures and the undead. It hits stores March 6 with interiors below.
