Heathen #1 Gets a Second Printing with a Jen Bartel Cover

Upstart publisher Vault Comics’ line of creator-owned science fiction and fantasy is really catching steam with rave reviews coming in, and news that the second series to be released is sold out at Diamond Comic Distributors! Heathen #1 premiered in stores on February 22nd, with the second issue in stores next week.

The publisher has announced a special second printing, featuring a brand new cover by Jen Bartel! This brand new edition is available now through Diamond Comic Distributors (JAN178931).

Natasha Alterici’s comic Heathen follows Aydis, a viking, a warrior, an outcast, and a self-proclaimed heathen. Aydis is friend to the talking horse Saga, rescuer of the immortal Valkyrie Brynhild, and battler of demons and fantastic monsters. Aydis is a woman. Born into a time of warfare, suffering, and subjugation of women, she is on a mission to end the oppressive reign of the god-king Odin.

The series has been making waves since it was first introduced through a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015. Before coming to Vault, as part of an ever-growing lineup of the best in graphic fiction, the series saw two self released volumes, and now finds a second life in single issues on the shelves of comic book shops around the world.
