Hags Are A Huge Hassle In ‘Helheim’ #5 [Preview]
When it comes to fictional witches, female spellcasters of all stripes usually fall into the “good” or “evil” camps. Hags, though? Almost universally bad, man. Take Cullen Bunn, Joelle Jones and Nick Filardi’s undead viking revenge saga, Helheim. It’s got some of the most menacing hags you’re ever likely to find in a comic book. This fact is crystallized the way superheroes squeeze goal into diamonds this Wednesday, July 10 in Helheim #5. Oni’s provided CA with a first-look at the issue showing just what kind of haggery the heroic Rikard must contend with as the series approaches its sixth, story arc-wrapping issue.
From Oni’s official solicitation info:
THE NEW SERIES FROM SIXTH GUN WRITER CULLEN BUNN AND FAN FAVORITE ARTIST JOËLLE JONES CONTINUES! His army is broken, but Rikard yet stands. In a slaughtered village, the night hag Groa waits for him. Rikard hungers for revenge, even as his own father plots to find a way to murder the draugr so that his son’s spirit might rest at last. Also, the witches Bera and Groa come face to face at last!
You can get a look at eight pages from Helheim #5 below.
