Feature: Jørund

Jørund (a free 16 page online preview after the link) is an upcoming graphic novel project, that tells the story of the titular character and is set within the Viking era. He is mostly pacifistic and refuses to seek vengeance after his father is killed in mortal combat against a member of a rival clan, much to his mother’s ire. Jørund faces humiliation from his fellow clan on many aspects of his life, to the point where he is kicked out of his home for lacking bloodlust and a sense of revenge.
