Sigurd is the last of the Völsung; a clan given the task to slay the dragon, Fafnir. As he makes his journey to Fafnir’s lair, he flashes back to memories of his older brother; especially when it came his time to face the dragon. He passes by the remains of his ancestors, and finally encounters the dreaded creature. Will he finally achieve what his entire bloodline failed to do, or will he join them?
Well, you know how this is going to end because this is the first issue of a four part miniseries. That being said, it was a nice rollercoaster of emotions leading up to the confrontation with the dragon. Nick Bermel does a great job getting the reader to care about Sigurd and what he and his clan have encountered. Jason Muhr’s illustration is very striking and impressive. Maxflan Araujo & Grostieta’s muted color scheme works very effectively for this tale. All in all a nice start to what could be a fun and exciting little miniseries. Check it out.
