Vinland Saga

I found this at least of some interest. There was an announcement that a new manga (Japanese comic series) would begin running in a serialized publication called Afternoon in Japan starting with the February 2006 issue (available on store shelves during yule in Japan). The new comic by Makoto Yukimura, creator of Planetes (whose English translated version is available in the U.S at major book retailers), called Vinland Saga is about a young Viking Warrior.

No news yet if there are any companies interested in bringing it over for translation.

The original online announcement in Japanese can be found here (at least for the time being): http://www.afternoon.co.jp/magazine/next.html
