Northlanders Vol. 1: Sven The Returned
Northlanders tells a savage tale of a warrior, Sven, returning back to his homeland to take back what belongs to him, or whatever that's left. In his path, he looks at his exile, sleeps with ridiculously beautiful enemies, and takes down all who opposes him, of course. The plot's written by Brian Wood, straight forward, well paced.
I like the artistic style for the comic, particularly the stylized character designs, paneling and colouring. The illustrator is Davide Gianelice.
And since I don't usually buy comics nowadays, this copy is from Kelvin Chan.
