Official Press Release
(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.
“Keldegarde is basically the “pariah” of the Valkyries.
Here she is a member of a very war-like culture who
judges people based on how well they fight and die,
and she’s advocating compassion and honor on a
level they’ve never seen before.” said Grevioux. “It
makes for really good conflict. She’s even been
known to bring a few dying animals to Valhalla as
well.” Grevioux also comments that the story will
have a lot of cool elements to it that really make for
a fantastic Disney-like epic. It has love, war, death,
triumph and disaster. That coupled with familiar
Norse characters such as Thor, Loki, Hela and Baldur,
Grevioux says, “It should be a fun ride!”
Here’s how the publisher describes the issue:
Written by Kevin Grevioux, with art by Leonel
Castellani, Eduardo Lemos, Mauro Vargas, and Javier
From Actor/Screenwriter, and
UNDERWORLD, Kevin Grevioux!
