Northlanders #45 (Vast pasture teeming of shit Spoilers)

‘The Icelandic Trilogy’ jumps a couple of hundred years into the future, but doesn’t miss a beat, this is still an intriguing and exciting story, with an epic scope which definitely makes it my favourite Northlanders story. I liked how Wood switched the head of the Hauksson from being a man to a woman, Brida seems like a really interesting character, she’s a woman yes, but she’s still very much a Hauksson, and she has a violent streak. I also like that Wood has returned to the conflict between the Vikings and Christianity, it’s a really interesting hook for a story, which makes us question our own moder society, we aren’t used to seeing Christians as ‘the other’, but for the characters in Northlanders, they definitely are. I was disappointed that Paul Azaceta was not continuing with the book, but Declan Shalvey is an excellent replacement, I love his work on Thunderbolts, and he’s just a suited to realistic historical drama as he is to superhero action.
