One TV show I enjoy a lot is Vikings, which appears on the History Channel. Is it accurate, historically? No, it’s not, but it’s something different, and I enjoy that. When I heard Titan Comics was making comics based on the series, I was thrilled… especially when Cavan Scott of Doctor Who fame was scripting!
