Round 2 of the Vinland Saga contest begins today on our Tumblr! After some clever wins, brutal beatings, and epic fights in Round 1… we can’t wait to see what Round 2 will hold!
For those who missed Round 1, we’re currently holding a contest to win original art by Vinland Saga creator Makoto Yukimura! We asked fans to create their own Vinland Saga character, and now we’re pitting them against each other in a tournament. We’re down from 12 contestants to 6 in Round 2, so be sure to check out the excellent battles the fans are creating.
Let's cut to the chase: We have three pieces of signed original art by "Vinland Saga" creator Makoto Yukimura.
They depict three characters from the series, Thorfinn, Thorkell, and Askeladd, and bear Mr. Yukimura's signature, seal, and a personal message to his American readers. As incredible as this sounds, we are giving these away.
But to win one, you'll first have to battle your way into a place among Askeladd's elite Viking warriors!
It’s here! Finally! Vinland Saga 1 by Makoto Yukimura
Out digitally and in print on October 8th, 2013!
