THE GODS MUST PAY…
Born into a time of warfare, suffering, and subjugation of women, and exiled
from her village for kissing another woman, the lesbian Viking warrior, Aydis,
sets out to destroy the god-king Odin and end his oppressive reign. She is a
friend to many as she is joined by mermaids, immortals, Valkyries, and the
talking horse, Saga. But she is also a fearsome enemy to the demons and
fantastic monsters that populate the land.
Heathen – The Complete Series Omnibus Edition trade paperback collects the
entire twelve-issue series.
Soon to be movie directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, Red Riding Hood, &
Lords of Dogtown)
Perfect for fans of Monstress, Helheim,
declarations of self from women and queer characters fit so elegantly into the
mythology Alterici uses to weave her tale, it reminds us that these narratives
belonged there all along.”- The Mary Sue
epics with female leads, and fortunately HEATHEN fulfills that desire in a
big way, while also adding its own unique touch with themes that are as
contemporary as they are timeless.”- Women
Write About Comics
“One look at
the cover and I knew this book was right up my alley. If you are into Norse
mythology and aching for a lesbian angle, then this book is for you. If you
want a love story that is more than a romance, a heroine that is truly
honourable and fierce, then I urge you to pick this … up.”- The Lesbian Review
Alterici’s Heathen, has
single-handedly redeemed the disaster that pop culture has been making of Norse
mythology. It’s a smart, funny, feminist, queer and sex-positive take on the
Viking world; one with a wide cast of diverse and endearing characters. Heathen is
a must-read for comics (and mythology) lovers of all sorts and those in quest
of superb queer and feminist comics in particular. RATING: 10/10”– Pop Matter
