Vikings Vs. Unicorns! It’s not a mash-up, it’s a new mythology
Vikings vs. Unicorns is a new comic book with a whole lot of rainbow-colored blood splattered across its opening pages, brought to you by rock and roller-turned-writer Jim Tramontana (Red Hot Rebellion, Spitvalves) and independent comic artist KC Anderson (Wafflecus).
You’ve heard of alternate histories? Well Vikings vs. Unicorns is an alternate mythology, recasting everyone’s favorite one-horned mythical icon of cuteness as a feral nightmare, endowed with immense powers and bent on destroying humanity. In the comic’s impressively complex storyline, they are pitted against one of history’s traditional villains, the Vikings, who are recast as humanity’s grimly determined saviors.
But it’s going to take more than just the sweet caress of steel to bring Vikings vs. Unicorns to print. With that in mind, Tramontana has composed the molten Vikings vs Unicorns theme song.
Tramontana and Anderson are hoping it will whip people up into a frenzy of arts patronage, enough so that they’ll pre-order the first issue of Vikings vs. Unicorns through their Kickstarter campaign currently running until THIS FRIDAY, November 7 at 8:00 PM EST.
