Graphic Novel Review: Vinland Saga V 1 by Makoto Yukimura

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I have been interested in Vinland Saga since the license was announced for US publication.  When it came out, however, I balked at the sticker price.  $19.99 per volume!  Instead, I requested the first two books from the library, and once I received them, I understood the price point.  These are hardcovers, and they are 2 in 1 omnibus releases, clocking in at over 450 pages.  After sitting down with the first volume, I find the price completely reasonable; the end product is beautiful, the pages are nice, thick paper, and the binding is rock solid.  The translation rocks, too!  All in all, Vinland Saga Book One is worth every penny!

Meet Olivia Beckett from Fix You by Christine Bell and Giveaway

 

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Olivia!  Can you share a typical day in your life?

[Olivia Beckett] Sure. I wake up, usually around eight a.m., and make a chocolate covered strawberry smoothie (DO THIS. It’s DELICIOUS. ½ cup vanilla yogurt, ½ cup fat free milk, ½ cup frozen strawberries, 1.5 TBS dark cocoa powder. Blend. Drink. Rejoice.) Then, if I have morning classes, I go to those. If not, I try to hit the gym or go for a walk or something. In the afternoons, I do homework so that in the evenings I can hang out later on. Did I say drink a pot of coffee throughout the day? If I didn’t, add that in. I love coffee. What else? Usually, one night a week we hit the bar and play beer pong or pool. Lately, I go hoping to run into Bash. Although, I don’t know how much longer I’ll be doing any of those things. My parents are having some…financial issues so school might not be an option next semester.
