‘Vikings: Uprising’ Comic Series Explores Aftermath of Show’s Midseason Finale
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Lagertha’s journey home from Paris is plagued by trouble in the upcoming Titan Comics miniseries.
Vikings: Uprising won’t focus on Travis Fimmel’s disgraced head of Kattegat nor Clive Standen’s ambitious sibling, however; instead, it’ll follow Ragnar’s ex-wife Lagertha (played by Katheryn Winnick on the show) as she escapes events in Paris, only to find herself forced to bear arms to prevent even more bloodshed and slaughter once she returns home.
The mini-series is the second Vikings comic from the publisher — the earlier Vikings: Godhead comic book sold out of its debut issue and went back to press — and sees writer Cavan Scott return to team with Batman and Wolverine artist Staz Johnson and explore what happened during the time jump of the show’s fourth season midpoint.
The first issue will be available for pre-order in July, with five covers by artists Chris Wahl, Mark Hammermeister, Claudia Caranfa, Verity Glass and Josh Burns, which can be seen below. The series will launch digitally and in comic book stores Sept. 14.
