Book Thoughts: Heathen V.1 (Natasha Alterici / Rachel Deering)

Alterici, Natasha - Heathen V1


Title: Heathen, V. 1
Author: Natasha Alterici / Rachel Deering
Genre: Graphic Novel
First published: 2015
Edition: E-book via NetGalley

The two stars are for the artwork and for putting LGBTQ+ characters in the story. Apart from that I did not really enjoy Heathen.

The plot, based on Norse mythology, was seemed pretty thin and the dialogue felt unnatural and forced. At no point did I feel I cared about any of the characters.

This graphic novel does have lots of great reviews and I keep asking myself whether we read the same novel or whether I just completely missed the point. I guess I must have done at both counts, but unfortunately I did not really get into the story at any point.

I really wanted to like this, but I guess it just was not for me.

By the way, why do the women go around in bikinis? That’s weird. I know it’s a graphic novel, but still…
