Northlanders 37 – The Siege of Paris

Simon Gane returns to Paris! Out now on DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint is issue 37 of Brian Wood’s popular Northlanders comic book, the first of a three-parter called The Siege of Paris, with art by Simon Gane. There is a color preview up on Warren Ellis’ Whitechapel site. Preview panels from issue 38 are on Simon’s site. Like the one above, they are in black and white. The book is in some very stunning color. Available at your local comic book shop.

A new storyline kicks off with “The Siege of Paris!” This is a grunt’s-eye view of the famous event, a relatively unsung chapter in Viking history, where hundreds defended against thousands, and political maneuvering was as important as the clash of the shield wall.
