Walter Simonson Returns to Ragnarök with World-Shattering New Storyline!

IDW Publishing is proud to announce the third chapter in Walter Simonson’s sweeping Ragnarök epic: The Breaking of Helheim! A six-issue odyssey into the deepest corners of the Nine Worlds, The Breaking of Helheim is written and illustrated by the comic book luminary whose name has become synonymous with the Norse pantheon and modern myth-making!

In the Ragnarök series, the gods gathered together and met their foes on the Battle Plain of Vigrid. The gods and their great enemies slaughtered each other, the stars fell from the sky, Midgard itself sank into the all-encompassing ocean, and the Nine Worlds were destroyed. When we begin Ragnarök: The Breaking of Helheim, Thor will hear a voice from out of the past and learn that not all the old stories are true…

In addition to the Regular and Variant Edition covers by Walter Simonson, a rare Ragnarök: The Breaking of Helheim #1 Variant Edition – featuring a jam collaboration between Simonson and fellow epic storyteller Stan Sakai – will connect to a Variant Edition of Usagi Yojimbo #1! That’s right – the two creative legends will trade characters (Sakai illustrating Ragnarök’s Thor, and Simonson illustrating Usagi) in a sensational dual composition that comic aficionados and collectors will adore.
