Press Release

Image Comics has announced a new four-issue miniseries called Beware the Eye of Odin. From creators Doug Wagner and Tim Odland with colors by Michelle Madsen, the Viking tale includes trolls, frost giants, and Valkyries too. Set for release June 22nd, the series follows Wagner’s previous series Vinyl and Plastic.

“I can’t wait for people to see this book. This whole thing started with Tim and I sitting at a Taco Bell trying to come up with something for he and I to work on together,” said Wagner. “He spouted out he’d like to do something with Vikings and monsters (Tim is actually descended from real life Vikings by the way). I was like, ‘I’m in, but only if we get to put our own spin on all those Norse monsters, creatures, and especially dwarves. I want my crack at dwarves.’ We didn’t leave Taco Bell for four hours after that.”

PORTLAND, Ore. 03/16/2022 — Vinyl and Plastic creator Doug Wagner teams up with artist Tim Odland and colorist Michelle Madsen for a tale of Vikings, trolls, frost giants, and Valkyries in the upcoming Beware the Eye of Odin. This four-issue miniseries is set to launch from Image Comics in June.

“I can’t wait for people to see this book. This whole thing started with Tim and I sitting at a Taco Bell trying to come up with something for he and I to work on together,” said Wagner. “He spouted out he’d like to do something with Vikings and monsters (Tim is actually descended from real life Vikings by the way).

Odland added: “This was a lot of fun for me! It was the perfect opportunity to revel in the world of Norse Mythology and pay tribute to those Ray Harryhausen adventures that I love so much.”

The perfect epic fantasy for fans of The Witcher and Andrew MacLean’s beloved comic book series Head Lopper.
