Comic-Con 2013–Vikings invade San Diego

Vikings prequel comic book SDCC 2013 exclusive

The History Channel pulled out all the stops at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend for its Vikings series.  If you didn’t catch the first season of Vikings, which we previewed earlier this year here at, you missed out on a series that rivaled Game of Thrones.  Vikings publicity was all over Comic-Con and we even landed great swag–this exclusive SDCC 2013 comic book prequel for the series, just begging to be made into a monthly series.  Vikings writer and creator Michael Hirst (who also wrote the comic story) was on-hand along with book artists Dennis Calero and Anthony Spay for signings.

You could also land a set of four exclusive lenticular trading cards at the Vikings events:

At the Vikings panel in Room 6A the studio previewed this special Season 2 clip to fans:

The History Channel also released this great preview for the Blu-Ray release coming October 15, 2013:

If that wasn’t enough, you could also get wet in a competitive Viking Waterway experience and get photos holding painted Viking shields on a mock longboat.

Cast members Travis Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick, Clive Standen, Jessalyn Gilsig, George Blagden and Gustaf Skarsgard attended the panel.

We’ll have more information on the Blu-Ray and DVD releases as we get closer to the October 15, 2013 release date.
