A new god-sized series filled with myth, mirth, and mayhem

Joe Casey (SEX, THE BOUNCE) and Paul Maybury (SOVEREIGN) reunite for  VALHALLA MAD, a new series about the greatest cosmic drink-up in all of the Nine realms, coming to Image Comics in 2015.

VALHALLA MAD introduces a set of brand new characters: the Glorious Knox, Greghorn the Battlebjorn and Jhago the Irritator. The series depicts this

particular trio of fun-loving gods' return to Earth—Manhattan, specifically—to drink and party and revel in their resplendent godhood after many decades of being away. Needless to say, they find a very different world than the one they last visited.

"This book is different than anything I've ever done before, and working with Paul again on something that we own has been a blast so far,” said Casey. “And even though we're using a very specific Silver Age comics' language to tell the story, there's a much deeper, more personal meaning to the work that I hope readers will connect to. It's the best of both worlds: bombast and heart.”

“Teaming up with Joe again to bring Valhalla Mad to life has been a dream,” added Maybury. “It's a book about friendship, life and of course, the gods.”

“One of the great things about Joe Casey is that he’s always looking for new ways to push himself,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “He’s so full of ideas—and better still, different kinds of ideas—and is always trying something new. The only chance of getting a book that is ‘more of the same’ from Joe is if ‘the same’ is defined by his continued dedication to surprising and subverting readers’ expectations of what comics can be.”

The party begins in VALHALLA MAD #1, filled with myth, mirth, and mayhem from Image Comics in Spring, 2015.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks! order prescription glasses online canada
