Before history was recorded in stone and ink, some men wrote it in blood! From the time before history began... from the time when the continents were still connected by land... from the harsh climes at the top of the world, a Northish soldier wrapped in a cape of wolfpelts walks south, into the forests of the High Midlands that are now Europe, to find a village cut in two by travelers from the East. Soon, he too is torn — between duty to the lives he has ruined just by finding them, and duty to the hideous murder-god of the Northish wastes and the berserker drugs that are his sacrament! Warren Ellis' barbarian epic is finally collected, just in time for the new series coming late 2009! This first volume collects the original three-issue series with art by Ryp, Annual #1 with art by Pagliarani, and a huge cover gallery all wrapped in a stunning, new painted cover by Felipe Massafera!
