Northlanders #22

Written by Brian Wood
Art by Leandro Fernandez

This is another very strong issue of Northlanders, as the settlement seals themselves in, and the inhabitants slowly start to adopt a siege mentality, made worse for Hilda and her child by Gunborg's attempts to extort provisions from them.

Wood is developing this story slowly, with plenty of time to explore the characters. Hilda demonstrates great strength of purpose in this issue, and we start to see how she is perceived by other people in the settlement.

Fernandez's art looks very good here.
