Expect the Unexpected Nov. 20 2013
By Jeff Bergen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a gripping and vivid story, and the illustrations make reading and experiencing it effortless and natural. It is an example of a graphic novel that uses the medium to its full power. I connected with the characters and their struggle to survive resonated with me more than any big-budget film I've seen in the last few months. Some of the themes that the book dealt with were loss and the corruption of leaders. Expect a deeper and more painful story than the cover suggests.
Once Were Vikings Nov. 8 2012
By Yujin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Long before Columbus was discovering America, the Vikings were settling Greenland. Not a lot is known about these rugged pioneers who left their Norse homes and hearths to embark on this glorious conquest, so Andrew Oberg's story is part adventure, and part historical imagining of what they must have faced.

The story joins the settlers some years later when their glorious quest has become a daily struggle for survival. The enemies lining up against these Once-were-Vikings are the long cold winters, the vicious polar bears, and the indigenous Inuit people, whose survival skills are more evolved and deadly than the invaders. Eric Uhlich's drawings capture the menace perfectly, and there is a bleakness in the snowy landscapes that reflects the characters dwindling spirits.

"Green Skies" is a fond requiem to heroism, courage and perhaps noble failure, but it is also a wry fable about how values and ideals are eroded by circumstance and cynicism. Arguably the wickedest enemies in the story are the men of the Christian Church.

The fate of the settlers is largely unknown, but there is an ambiguously optimistic conclusion to the story that makes you wonder, and stays with you. Thoroughly recommended.
