Independent comic book publisher Image Comics has announced a new series from creators Joe Casey and Paul Maybury entitled Valhalla Mad, which looks to tread a different path than a lot of comics on shelves.
The series is described as a chronicle of the drunken adventures of a trio of Norse gods vacationing on earth, so it’s safe to say that it won’t fall into the all-ages category.
The first issue of Valhalla Mad will hit stores on May 20, 2015.
[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]
THREE GODS CUT LOOSE IN VALHALLA MAD
An all-new high fantasy series from Joe Casey and Paul Maybury
Bestselling writer Joe Casey (SEX) and artist Paul Maybury (SOVEREIGN) team up for an all-new high fantasy series in VALHALLA MAD. The series launches from Image Comics on May 20.
Their names are legend: the Glorious Knox! Greghorn the Battlebjörn! Jhago the Irritator! Three warrior gods vacationing on Earth, just looking to get their drink on and have a good time! Join the drunken festivities—a new mythology begins in VALHALLA MAD.
“Never in the history of periodical publishing has a tale of such god-sized inebriation and social debauchery been committed to four-color print!” said Casey. “You can smell the mead coming right off the pages! Not to mention, it might be Paul Maybury’s greatest artistic achievement yet! Just get ready for a heady dose of ‘thee’s’ and ‘thou’s’ as three gods get seriously drunk…”
VALHALLA MAD #1 hits stores on May 20. Cover A (Maybury) and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR150484. Cover B (Nick Pitarra) can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR150485.
