Vinland Saga 1 Has Arrived!

It’s here! Finally! Vinland Saga 1 by Makoto Yukimura
Out digitally and in print on October 8th, 2013!


As a child, Thorfinn sat at the feet of the great Leif Ericson and thrilled to wild tales of a land far to the west. But his youthful fantasies were shattered by a mercenary raid.
