Tag Archives: Ake’s Trial

So, today is that day.

I picked up the proofs of the this years output.

The Viking Saga book I’ve been working on with Rob Jones, (the sort of follow up to The King’s Leap), Ake’s Trial. From Madius Comics and Iron Shod Ape

Okay, so way before the press copies go out, and way before you’ll get a chance to pick it up at Thought Bubble in November, comes this four page taster of the new Viking comic, that is a “follow up/prequel” to Rob and I’s The King’s Leap from last year… featuring the characters and events from the tale started by the old storyteller but then abandoned in the last comic.

Enjoy, any feedback or comments to @hesir on Twitter if you can.

These Viking stories remain a Co-porduction between Madius Comics & Iron Shod Ape. With Rob Jones Plotting and Writing and myself providing the art and occasion dialogue.

And thanks for taking a look.
