Elsewhere, another Viking searches for a different kind of prize, one of crucible steel...

Amazon synopsis[]

Fearless Vikings confront their destiny in this glory-seeking prequel to Ubisoft's next hit video game, Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

Tensions escalate when a village caught between two rival kingdoms is brutally raided. Eivor, warrior and daughter of wise King Styrbjorn, dispatches the raiders, rescues the villagers, and claims the settlement for her father. She also seizes a prisoner—a woman, Gull, left behind by the rivals—who declares she possesses the secrets of Asgard itself. But there is more to Gull than meets the eye, and her capture will bring death and destruction to Eivor's family. In disgrace and lured by the promise of treasures and glory, Eivor undergoes a dangerous quest to regain her honor, but what terror awaits in the forgotten temple of a powerful god? All the time, her brother Sigurd forges his own legend while searching for fortune in the lands of the East. Far from home, he finds new weapons and fresh plunder, making a discovery that will change his destiny forever . . . [3]


In September 2019, Dark Horse Comics approached Cavan Scott and asked him to travel to Montreal, Canada to work on a secret project. During his time in the studio, Scott was walked through the basics of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, the next title in the Assassin's Creed series. Production on the comic began almost immediately.[4]

Announced on 12 July 2020, after the UbiForward event showcasing Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, the prequel comic was written by Scott with artwork by Martín Túnica and Michael Atiyeh. Unlike past comic series, Song of Glory was published by Dark Horse Comics, who had also published The Art of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla.[1] The next day, Dark Horse made a press release on their website's blog revealing a general synopsis for the comic which also indicated that it would feature the female version of Eivor.[2] In August, details of the second issue were revealed including cover art by Sumit Kumar.[5] Details on the third and final volume in the series were released alongside cover art by Douglas P. Lobo in late September.[6] A listing on Target's website revealed the trade paperback's release date as 20 April 2021.[7]
