    I would like to thank NetGalley and Vault Comics for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Introduction: I have noticed lately that I rarely got the chance to read graphic novels that features a LGBT character as the main protagonist and I ha...

    Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley There are two mythological cycles that I have a fondness for ? the Story of Troy and the Volsung saga. In fact, I prefer Norse myths to Greek. I?m not entirely sure why, but I always have. Heathen is a comic book that draws upon ancient Norse s...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest I wasn't sure what to expect from a book called HEATHEN, but it certainly wasn't a bad-ass tale about a lesbian viking warrior girl who embarks upon a quest to save a Valkyrie from the curse of Odin. Which is exactly what ...

    I really enjoyed the story here. The art was really fluid and somewhat sketchy. In some places the sketchy quality of the art was really lovely and in other parts it appeared either rushed or unfinished. ...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review When I saw this I was like queer vikings? SIGN ME UP! And it definitely did not disappoint. Really the only reason this got 4 stars from me instead of 5 is because it's the first volume so a lot of i...

    I am totally here for a lesbian Valykrie quest to overthrow the homophobic patriarchy! It starts when our heroine, young Viking warrior Aydis, is exiled from her people for kissing a girl. She decides a good next step would be to prove her worth by freeing Brynhild, immortal Valkyrie, ...

    Galley provided by publisher Rep: lesbian mc, bi li, non-white characters Maybe more like 3.5 than 4, but this was so good. I never knew that a wlw warrior going on a quest to save a valkyrie and (maybe) kill Odin was something I needed but oh my god it was. Not to mention the ar...

    This book. Oh my god, this book. I downloaded this from netgalley late last week. I was just scrolling around absent-mindedly in some different genres, and I requested it purely based on the art quality on the cover. I just dug the coloring style, and I was like yeah. I can do Viki...

    Norse mythology. Valkyries. Vikings. Barbarians. Lesbian main characters. Talking horses and wolves. Honestly, how could 'Heathen' not be hyped? Or how could a fantasy comic book reader like myself - who also hadn't read anything specifically about vikings until now - not get ridiculou...

    Totally great Find. I saw this at the library as recommended by a staff member in the staff reads. I picked it up thinking it looked interesting. This is about a lesbian living in the viking culture going on her hero's journey. The gods of Norse mythology also play a role in this bo...

    I happened to stumble upon this graphic novel by mere chance but I'm thankful that I did. I am bereaved of words which make it possible for me to write a review that actually makes sense. Norse mythology was already a huge plus for why I wanted to read this and I'm a fan of vikings ...

    Totally not what I expected, a kick-ass lesbian viking fighting for the outcasts of Norse society. Plus, Brunhilde the Queen of the Valkyries struggling to end Odin's curse upon her. Sign me up please. The character interactions are marvelous. The art starts out a little rough but by t...

    Good! So I heard some good things about this series and the fact that its set in Norse Mythology is good enough for me! So the story is long ago The Leader of The Valkyries disobeyed Odin, so she was cursed and trapped on a mountain, one day she is saved by an outcast Viking woman name...

    This was a Christmas present from a friend, who didn't know if it was going to be good, but, I paraphrase, "It's about lesbian vikings, and that sounded so you, so Merry Christmas." And honestly? I'M BLESSED TO HAVE FRIENDS THAT KNOW ME THIS WELL. So this comic is indeed about lesbia...

    "Warriors don't fight for themselves, they fight for those who cannot fight on their own. You said you wanted to spare Brynhild her suffering? Well, I want to do the same, for her and for many other women." What an uplifting and charming beginning to this amazing lesbian hero's stor...
