(San Diego, CA) – Coming this March, Alias Comics and Astounding Studios bring you a new kind of warrior, with VALKYRIES #1, by writer Kevin Grevioux and artist Leonel Castellani.
VALKYRIES is an all-new limited series about a young Valkyrie who doesn't exactly follow "Odinian protocol" when it comes to choosing warriors to enter Valhalla, the Viking heaven.
Typically in Viking lore, only the strong and the brave are allowed into Valhalla's hallowed halls. However, a young Valkyrie named Keldegarde, has a compassion for the least likely individuals to enter the Norse afterlife. She chooses people who are sick and infirmed, and not necessarily the brave and the bold. This attitude and behavior doesn't sit too well with neither her fellow Valkyries, nor the absolute ruler of Asgard, King Odin himself. Odin knows that if Valhalla is filled with unworthy warriors the gods will be poorly prepared when Ragnarok comes and the forces of evil attack. This can't happen if Asgard is to survive.
Here's how the publisher describes the issue:
Written by Kevin Grevioux, with art by Leonel Castellani, Eduardo Lemos, Mauro Vargas, and Javier Tartaglia
From Actor/Screenwriter, andCreator/star of UNDERWORLD, Kevin Grevioux!
Keldegarde, a young Valkyrie, finds the heroic in the most unusual places. When she returns to Valhalla with her latest warrior, she unwittingly starts a chain of events that will change the face of Norse mythology forever. The adventure of a lifetime begins here!
