The groundbreaking TV drama Vikings is spinning off into a series from Titan Comics, by Doctor Who comics writer Cavan Scott and former Wolverine artist Staz Johnson.

If fans of Vikings want to follow Ragnar Lothbrok, Lagertha and the rest to comics, that can only be good for the medium. And if it inspires comics fans to check out the TV show, that certainly doesn't hurt either.
