Well, well, well Ragnar, we meet again! It’s been so long since we last talked – a mostly one sided conversation- at the Wondercon panel. Now I will have another chance to whisper at you from afar on two different occasions at SDCC! Because I’m such a generous person who thinks the whole world should be stalking….err… watching the show and it’s cast, I wanted to spread the about History‘s VIKINGS appearances at SDCC! I could keep Ragnar to myself by not telling y’all about the panel, interactive experience, band performance, comic book, and cast signing …Mmm Ragnar… , but then I’d be doing a disservice to all the Lagertha fans out there. So don’t accuse me of never thinking of others!
· Today in the mail I received an advance copy of the first VIKINGS comic book; it’s an SDDC exclusive! Here’s the lowdown:
o Based on television show created by Michael Hirst
o Published by Zenescope
o Creator and writer of the comic: Michael Hirst
o Artwork: Dennis Calero
o Letters: Jim Campbell
o Senior Editor: Anthony Spay

Fans attending the panel and waterway will receive a Comic Book (while supplies last). I’m not going to spoil the book for you, but it takes place in a time period prior to the show.
