Heathen
Heathen: Season 1 | Natasha Alterici
13 posts | 18 read | 62 to read
Though set in the age of Vikings, Heathen tells a myth relevant to our own culture. Our hero struggles with finding bravery, purpose, identity, wisdom, and love-as all great heroes do. But the hero of this epic quest is a woman. Her struggle is further complicated by patriarchal ideologies and attempts by men to control her, just as it is for women of today.The first season trade also comes with extra content including character sketches and a short, bonus story.

Before reading this, I didn't realize I needed queer Viking epic fantasy in my life. This was unexpectedly sweet and touching, and Aydis is a badass. Looking forward to volume two.

I‘ve had this on my tbr for quite a while, and I kept putting off reading it because I had a feeling I‘d immediately want more and I‘m fairly certain the wait is going to be long... and I was right. This story just grabs you and what a ride it is! I love the art, I love the characters we meet along the way, I can‘t wait to see where this goes next!

This whole graphic novel is the definition of #badassery - it‘s hard to pin down one moment... this one will do for aesthetic reasons 😄 #speechbubblechallenge #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon

4⭐️ The God Odin has imprisoned Brynhid in Fire. She can only be released when a true mortal warrior can pass through the fire. Once free she is cursed to marry her hero. Only this time her hero is a woman. The woman Aydis was cast from her home for the sin of kissing another woman. She wants all women and men to be free to love and marry whomever they wish. The artwork is amazing and different from what is normally seen in graphic novels.

Oh. My. God.
This was AMAZING! I can't believe how good it was. I downloaded it on #netgalley mostly for the cover, I never imagined it would affect me so deeply. But it did.
It was beautifully written and beautifully drawn. And I don't even know what I'll do till vol. 2.

Lesbian viking gets exiled from her home and sets out on a mission to free the queen of the Valkyrie and to rescue out LGBTQ+ people? SIGN ME UP. This graphic novel was beautifully drawn and written and had such an incredible story and set of characters. It comes out on July 19 on kindle, and Aug 8 on paperback!

After being exiled for kissing another woman, Aydis goes on a quest to free the rogue Valkyrie Brynhild, who's been imprisoned on a mountain. This looks to be a pretty epic queer fantasy!
