is an American comic book series published by DC Comics under their Vertigo imprint. The stories are fictional but set in and around historical events during the Viking Age. Northlanders is written by Brian Wood, illustrated by various artists on a per storyline basis with painted cover art by Massimo Carnevale. The first issue of the series was published on December 5, 2007. Wood has said that the series will be divided into standalone eight issue story arcs separated by two-issue arcs, though it's not strictly followed. Northlanders does not have a true main character; the cast and setting change with each story arc. Issue #20 finally changes that by reuniting readers with Sven, the protagonist of the first arc. It is a worthy sequel to "Sven the Returned" and a perfect standalone issue. This series may perhaps be one of the best ongoing monthly comic books of Vertigo.
