Northlanders #8 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Northlanders #8, about which I write the following sentences: "After the intense climax of issue #7, Brian Wood and Davide Gianfelice conclude their first 'Northlanders' story arc with a calmly measured look at the consequences of one man's decisions. That one man is, of course, Sven, the protagonist of this now concluded, eight-issue arc. It was a bold move for Wood to launch a new series -- a Vertigo series -- with such a long opening story. Many Vertigo comics seem to live or die based on sales of the first trade paperback, and having to wait for eight full issues to be collected before gauging true audience reaction might have put this comic in jeopardy within its first year. I hope that's not the case. I hope DC gives this title a chance to develop an audience, and I hope you and all of your friends by the first trade when it's released because 'Northlanders' is one of the best comics on the stands and it deserves to live for years and years."
