“The Beast of Wolfe's Bay is an adaptation of the best kind, reinterpreting its mythic source material into something fresh with just a dash of geekery and humor thrown in for good measure. Evensen's modern day take on the Beowulf saga is a must-add to any truly cool spring break reading list.”

“I enjoyed it a lot. Seriously.
A lot. Best comic I've read in quite a while.”
—Sean Kleefeld, Kleefeld on Comics
"Often critics of comics as an art form have sneered that there has never really been educational comics. But Gods Of Asgard is both literate and entertaining. It also gives the reader a good background in the kind of heroic fiction that has evolved into the modern comic book."
