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!

PREVIEWS Prevue: Cullen Bunn's The Brothers Dracul From AfterShock

“I'm thrilled to be working on BROTHERS DRACUL, a 15th century horror tale that explores the "true" history of the infamous Vlad the Impaler. With this book, we've brought the entire creative team of UNHOLY GRAIL along. I'm working with artist Mirko Colak, colorist Maria Santaolalla, and letterer Simon Bowland once again. We had so much fun telling a horror story with King Arthur as its central figure, we had to get the gang back together for this story, featuring one of the most shocking icons of horrific history!” -Cullen Bunn
