About Vinland Saga Manga Volume 2 (Hardcover)

Vinland Saga volume 2 features story and art by Makoto Yukimura in this hardcover edition.

The foolish King Ethelred has fled, and Askeladd's band is one of hundreds plundering the English countryside. Yet victory brings no peace to the elderly Danish King Edmund, who worries that his untested, sensitive son Canute will never be ready to take the throne.

The king's attempt to force his son to become a man places the young prince within the grasp of the gleeful killer Thorkell! Whoever holds Canute holds the key to the thrones of England and Denmark - and Askeladd has his own reasons for joining the fray!

Vinland Saga volume 2 and series review

by

I greatly enjoyed the author's previous work "Planetes". So I waded into this expecting to be impressed...I am impressed. This work will become among the great manga titles that deal with in this case, a historical period filled with violence and political intrigue. I rank this as an equal to Takehiko Inoue's "Vagabond" series as a visual and literary treat to be savored and no serious manga collector should be without!

More dark entertainment and violence.

by -

If you like the Vikings tv series, or vikings in general, or brooding badasses out for vengeance, or cold remorseless mercenaries, this is a great series. Warning though: this series does change tone over time.

More blood and gore, more spectacular action and clever yet ruthless plans. Thorfinn faces off with one of his most dangerous enemies, we meet the sadest excuse for a prince, and learn some new tidbits about Askeladd.

A Must Read

by -

Vinland Saga has become one of my favorite manga series. The story of hardcore Vikings and a quest for revenge is epic. I can barely put the book down while reading it, but since there are about 500 pages per book, I need a break here and then. Overall Vinland Saga is a manga that everyone must read. It's an awesome story that needs more attention.

Worth every penny

by -

Vinland Saga is an exciting, fast paced historical drama that is nearly impossible to put down. Each of the hard cover volumes is sturdy and looks very pretty on a shelf.
