Heathen Volume 1

But the goddess Freyja has other ideas, and gets involved.

Heathen Volume 1

What I find most fascinating about this comic is that it was written and drawn by a woman, and that comes through in the art. The women may be scantily clad in some scenes, but they still look like real women. I found the portrayal of Freyja most interesting, because the goddess of love is not drawn as a man would draw her, but as powerful and confident. (And most likely historically accurate.)

I’ve already ordered Volume 2.
