New comics are released in most places on Wednesday. Just a brief one this week.

New NORTHLANDERS, #37, with art by Simon Gane. The above art is actually from #38, but what the hell, same artist, same story. I don’t know why more of you don’t seek out NORTHLANDERS books. Who doesn’t love Vikings?

The second issue of CASANOVA: GULA is out on the 9th, continuing the relettered and recoloured presentation of the wonderful Fraction/Moon/Ba series. CASANOVA is basically the best sf comic in the world right now. I’ve read the script for the first issue of the new series, which follows on the heels of the four issues of GULA, and it’s mental.

Also, glory be, the 30th issue of Antony Johnston’s WASTELAND, which I love. Hell, I wrote a foreword for the recent bigass collected edition. If you like big sprawling weird post-apoc worldbuilding — and that’s a lot of you — then this is a comic you should have looked at years ago. There’s an extensive preview of #30 here. This issue comes, as ever, with a lovely Templesmith cover.

The trouble with Northlanders for me is that is a whole lot of different characters. One epic saga and then blam, entirely new characters. If they stuck with some sort of consistent cast I'd be a lot more interested.
