Walt Simonson Unleashes Ragnarok This Summer

The Vikings believed that the world was created from the body of the fallen giant Ymir, that the world would end the serpent Jormungandr consumed it after a battle with Thor, and the world would begin again for a new cycle of creation and destruction. Nordic skalds told this story in meadhills, and they called it Ragnarok.

This summer, legendary creator Walt Simonson — no stranger to Norse mythology as seen in his long run on Marvel Comics' Thor — returns to the tales of the Norse gods in his new series from IDW Publishing, Ragnarok. Gods and monsters battle at the end of time, and the fate of Earth — and the Nine Worlds of Norse myth — are in the balance. Monsters will rise, heroes will fall, worlds will break, legends will be born, and sagas will be sung. This is a truly mythic work from a truly mythic creator. This is the Twilight of the Gods. And it begins this July in Walt Simonson's Ragnarok #1 from IDW Publishing. Don't miss it!
